Winter Fruit Salad
Today we are going to share our favorite salad recipes. When people think of salad, they think of summer, picnics and backyard barbecues but I enjoy a good salad anytime of the year. Especially a fruit salad. This salad is easy to make and tastes great. During the holidays we tend to over indulge in heavy dishes and snacks. Winter Fruit Salad is always a welcomed sight.
Every once in awhile I come across some large, juicy navel oranges but nothing ever compares to the oranges we bought while she was in band class. What I won’t give to have a box or two of “band class” oranges. When my daughter was in the high school band, many moons ago, each year they would sell citrus fruit. Ever since then, I seem to crave citrus fruit during the winter months. There is something comforting about eating an orange while it’s snowing outside.
A delicious fruit salad that uses fruit that is generally available during the winter months

In a large bowl, toss together all of the fruit. Squeeze lime juice over fruit. Pour the dressing over the top and gently toss to coat. For best results, serve immediately.
