Mandarins are one of our favourite Winter fruits, not only are they great to have as a snack but they add so much sweetness to a salad. This simple and colourful salad is refreshing served for lunch or dinner. The mandarins and cranberries sweeten it and the kale and walnuts add crunch. The salad is topped with feta cheese and a mustard and honey dressing. Mandarins are high in vitamin C which helps to boost immunity and fight off those winter colds, make sure you are incorporating this fruit in your diet over the colder months.
