Tangerines, incredibly sweet and juicy, are the most common type of mandarin found in the United States. When shopping for tangerines, look for brightly colored fruit without any signs of damage. Select tangerines grown closest to your home, and purchase Fair Trade if only imported tangerines are available. Tangerines may be kept at room temperature for 1-2 days. Refrigerated they will stay fresh in the crisper drawer for up to 1 week. This salad is a refreshing, citrusy delight that will boost your energy and lift your midwinter spirits!
