Minty Fruit Salad with Honey-Ginger Dressing

Minty Fruit Salad with Honey-Ginger Dressing by

‘Tis the season to be jolly, eating all those rich, delicious, heavy foods.

But we have a long month ahead of us and we need a balance to the festive indulgence. Our bodies can only take so many holiday gatherings and celebrations where the snacking temptations are endless.

A citrusy salad with a bit of ginger is a simple way to ‘detox’ our bodies. Combining oranges, kiwis, toasted almonds and fresh mint leaves – with a honey ginger dressing - makes for a light, refreshing, feel good side to those end of the year excesses.
