Now that the weather is getting warmer, all I want is fresh salads and fruits and vegetables. Isn’t it funny how that happens as soon as we say goodbye to winter? This simple fruit salad is beautiful, refreshing, and so easy to make. I like a fruit salad, but I think that they can be a little boring, so made a really easy dressing to toss the fruit in. Citrus juice, honey, and fresh mint is not earth shattering, but so crisp and clean when tossed with fruit. A little pinch of sea salt would be great in this too. I had some leftover fruit salad, so I turned it into a smoothie. In all honesty, it was best smoothie I have ever had.

Step 4: Remove the peel and pith from the orange by cutting it off starting at the top and working your knife down the sides of the orange. I like to go back and clean it up with a paring knife.
