Winter Jeweled Fruit Salad
With tomorrow being March 1st, we have reached that point of the winter where one more day of cold weather feels like torture. It seems as if spring is just around the corner, yet still so far away. Thoughts of open-toed shoes, strolls outside, and warm breezes are beginning to dance in my head. I think about the Farmers’ Market and all the fresh, seasonal foods that spring and summer bring. But since winter is still here for at least a little longer, I’m enjoying the gems that are currently in season with this Winter Jeweled Fruit salad. Although sweet and colorful fruits remind me of warmer months, it’s the blood oranges, kumquats, and pomegranate seeds that are featured in this salad that really peak during these colder months. With a squeeze of lime juice, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper, a unique sweet and spicy element is added to this already atypical fruit salad.
