Sunny Citrus Platter

One of the great gifts of winter at the produce market is citrus.  Just when the days are short and the skies are often gray we get a POW of flavor and energy in the citrus aisle.  Not only do we get a jolt of flavor and color from our citrus, but we also get needed vitamin C and a host of other nutrients.  There are many beautiful, zippy fruit from which to choose.  This simple fruit salad is so easy to make, and perks up any winter meal.

Using a sharp paring knife, cut off the peel of the citrus to expose the juice fruit.  Cut into bite size pieces and arrange on a small platter.  Chiffonade the mint and sprinkle over the citrus.  Enjoy!
