  1. I love citrus! It is about the only thing available around here this time of year – and I really think God made it available this time of year to make us happier and brigher during the winter 😉


  2. Linda, I made this salad on Superbowl Sunday… it was delicious! I used raspberries instead of the pomegranate seeds and I caramelized the walnuts… YUM! Thanks for another wonderful recipe!
