Citrus Salad with Chili and Mint-A Healthy Hunger

 The Spring feels like it needs to be dragged out of the winter grays. This  Spicy Minted Citrus Salad , with all it’s bright colors, is just the thing to do it.

I love to combine different levels of citrus together. The sweet pay compliment to the more tart, and their colors both shine and rejoice in each other’s company. To make things more interesting I’ve added some torn dates and a dusting of red pepper flakes. The sweet chewiness of the dates are a nice contrast to the juicy bites, and the spice is a tease that you don’t really expect.

Think of this salad as we enter the holidays. It’s both wonderful on a brunch or lunch table and the colors and taste will brighten everyone’s day. Or add it to your lunch box. What an afternoon treat!

btw- if you like my oil cruet you may find it to purchase HERE. Mine was given as a gift, and it’s one that I use frequently and with pleasure.
