feeling fruity

still currently suffering from a post-thanksgiving food hangover (actually it's more of a post-work conference-weekend binge in cabo-thanksgiving hangover, but who's keeping track), and feeling a serious need to lighten up my eating; enter fruit salad.  

i generally associate a good fruit salad with a warm summer day, but bless the marina safeway for stocking off-season fruits all year round... it's nice to remember there are healthy options to add to my winter diet besides kale...  i combined a few seasonal fruits with a some other faves (aka any fruit the stands had to offer) and grated lime rind over for a refreshing kick.  great for snack, side dish, dessert or tossed in the blender when your sick of fruit salad.  i feel healthier just looking at these pics.

asian pear, persimmon, pomegranate, mango, & kiwi topped with lime
 tip: i break up the pomegranate in a bowl of water; cut the pomegranate in two, break the seeds out under the water and after the seeds have sunk to the bottom, skim the white membrane off of the top- super easy and you will avoid ruining your favorite t's with pom juice
