It has been a bit chilly in most areas of the country lately. It seems that when the air gets brisk, cold and flu season is right around the corner. My elders always taught me to ward off the germs by digesting plenty of citrus and Vitamin C. I have included a satisfying fruit salad to help combat illness and defend our immune systems this winter.
You will need:
- 3 oranges
- 4 tangerines
- Pineapple (we cheated and got some pre-cut pineapple; probably around a pound?)
- 1 pomegranate
- Spearmint leaves
Drain all the excess juice from the oranges/tangerines and pineapple (save this for drinking later, it’s pretty tasty). Add half of the mint to the citrus and half to the pineapple, tossing each fruit with the mint to distribute.
To assemble, in a clear-sided bowl, make a layer of the orange-tangerine mixture. Sprinkle about half of the pomegranate pips in a ring around the inside edge of the bowl. Add the pineapple on top, then top with the remainder of the pomegranate. Chill in the fridge for a few hours before serving to allow flavors to mingle. Enjoy!
