One of my favorite things about winter is picking fresh citrus from my back yard. Have you ever tried a red grapefruit picked right from the tree? It tastes like candy. Seriously! With over 15 varieties of citrus on our property, there is always something fresh and unique to try. I love trying new recipes and adding citrus flavor to my meals. Citrus is a burst of fresh color and flavor during the cold days of winter. In fact, some days I slice up a few types of citrus, layer them on a plate and enjoy the beautiful colors. A beautiful color palate and a unique variety of flavors is refreshing and fun. In addition to the citrus, we always have a few pomegranates and an entire garden bed of fresh kale. Combining the citrus, pomegranate and kale yields a bold, beautiful and flavorful salad. The best thing about this salad is that it’s easy. Even counting the time it takes me to pick the fresh fruit and kale, I can have this salad ready in less than 15 minutes.
