Winter is not typically associated with fresh fruit dishes that are full of vibrant colors. But when the days are short and the weather is brutally cold, I make an effort to brighten up my day by eating a delicious dish, especially something bright like this Winter Fruit Salad.

The scent from peeling the oranges will immediately invigorate your senses and the array of fresh mango and mint, blended with the slightly spicy dressing, is a pleasing way to get your daily dose of fruit. Did you know that mango never goes out of season? In terms of fruits to add to your diet, it's a great one, because you never have to think about whether or not it is actually in season.

Come in from the cold and head straight for that kitchen table, readers. A healthy snack is about to be served!
