It is finally orange season and I must say that mandarins are my FAVE! Such sweet tarts in a little circle(ish). In a fruit salad, on top of a green salad, by themselves, or in a recipe… Halo Mandarin Oranges are perfect! I was excited to be given the task of creating a yummy recipe using the Halo Oranges as part of this sponsored campaign on behalf of Halos!
Mandarins are Mother Nature’s perfect snack. And Halos™ are the perfect mandarins – sweet, juicy, seedless, and easy for little hands to peel. Even better, these li’l guys are 100% California born and raised, and absolutely, positively non-GMO. So every Halos mandarin is pure and delicious, just as nature intended.
