Thai Spiced Fruit Salad

This festive fruit salad works well as a side dish for a holiday breakfast or brunch, or as a healthy alternative to heavy dips and hors d'ouerves for a cocktail party.  Citrus shines in winter months, and the bold ruby color of the pomegranate makes a beautiful and healthy display!  

Thai Spiced Fruit Salad
2 cups orange sections (about 4 oranges) 
1/2 cup pomegranate arils 
4 sliced peeled kiwifruit
1 (4-pound) pineapple, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes 
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice 
1/8 teaspoon The Delicious Dietitian Thai Spice Blend

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine rind and next 3 ingredients (through Thai Spice Blend) in a small bowl. Gently stir lime mixture into fruit mixture; cover and chill.
