Salads aren’t just for summer! These gorgeous blood oranges are in season so pair them up right with some crispy jicama. What else is in season? Skiing, warm fires, hot chocolate, rosy cheeks, being bug free, sparkly clean snow, layers, and catching up on your Netflix. I say we stop complaining and embrace all the fantastic things about winter. Still hate it? Well, this salad is so refreshing it just might have you feeling summery for a moment. Paired with a playlist of tunes by Surfer Blood, My Bloody Valentine, and many more.
