Grapefruit & Kiwi Salad

In Recipes, Salads & Soups by the dirty hippie and the bohemian girl0 Comments

Winter produce isn’t always bountiful, but when it’s cold outside, citrus and kiwi are at their peak. That means it’s the perfect time to indulge in this simple and tasty fruit salad. The colors are vivid and are a fun way to enjoy the last of winter’s bounty before you welcome spring.

You can serve this quick dish for breakfast, brunch or as dessert. The combination of maple syrup and dates add sweetness without the strong flavor of sugar, and the mint really perks up the sharp flavor of the grapefruit. This also makes a great, healthy after-school snack. As written, it is vegan and gluten-free.
