Winter Fruit Salad

Some say goodbye to fresh produce during the winter months, believing it is out of season and therefore expensive.  Wrong! Citrus is delicious this time of year! Grapefruit… clementines… I just can’t get enough.   My girlfriends from college are coming into town this weekend to visit and a juicy, flavorful winter fruit salad is on the brunch menu! Just grab you favorite winter fruits, layer in a pretty cup and drizzle with a delicious honey/lime syrup! The below recipe couldn’t be easier.
