Blood Orange, Kiwi & Mint Fruit Salad

When I think of fruit salads, I picture small plastic cups with a medley of bland, diced fruit in a thick syrup. This is the kind of fruit salad I grew up on and, I have to be honest, I’ve never been a big fan because of this formative canned fruit salad experience. As I grew older and realized fruit can actually be flavorful and delicious when it’s fresh, whole and seasonal, I warmed up to the idea of mixing seasonal fruits and adding in delicious herbs to give it a kick. I’m reformed. Fruit salad reformed.

Winter can be a bit dry in the fruit department but if you’re like me, you feel a surge of joy when the first winter citrus comes on display. For as much as blood orange is beautifully photogenic and Instagram-worthy, it does have a bit of a sour kick and isn’t a fruit I enjoy much of alone. However, when paired with the tropical sweetness of kiwi, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of mint, blood orange is taken next level.
