Plus, it’s a great salad in the winter too. It reminds me of the summer (and to be honest, I’m a total suck for palm trees and warm weather). And, up here in Canada, it can get pretty cold, so this salad is a go-to favorite for me.

This sweet citrus salad is the BOMB. For real. It's also super simple to make and does an excellent job of wowing the crowd. Whenever I make it, my guests always eat the whole bowl! There are never any leftovers at the end of the night. It is super lemony and it has the right balance of sweet and savory. If you're anything like me, you'll get hooked on this salad and crave it when 5 o'clock starts rollin' around.
