The Best Winter Fruit Salad is filled with clementines, kiwi, pears, apples, and pomegranate, then tossed in sweet tart honey lime poppy seed dressing. These are all fruits that are in season in the fall and winter and when tossed with the most delicious dressing it’s a dinner winner for sure. This is a colorful healthy addition to any meal.
Serve this bright salad along with a hearty warm soup, like Copycat Zupas Wisconsin Cauliflower, or Minestrone. Then add some homemade bread, like Miracle No Knead Bread or Parker House Rolls for a light but satisfying meal.
Fruit. I seriously can’t get enough fruit. I have always loved having fruit in the house and my little girl loves fruit just as much as I do! Even though I love summer fruits and am totally a strawberry gal, some of my favorite fruits are winter fruits. Clementines for example are always at our house as soon as they start putting them in the grocery stores. And I am totally obsessed with kiwis. Apples, pears, pomegranate seeds, everything comes together so perfectly in this mouthwatering salad.
I made this winter fruit salad quite a few times during the holidays and it is so bright, vibrant and delicious. We love having a fruit salad at the dinner table when we eat with family, and this one is always requested! It’s so simple and requires a little chopping and gets tossed in a honey lime poppy seed dressing. I love using honey lime in my fruit salads and it gives it a sweet and tangy coating on the fruit.
Full of festive fruits and covered in a beautiful dressing.
Comes together quickly.
Pomegranates are a unique fruit, since you actually only eat the seeds. They are extremely healthy and taste so good. But getting your hands on them can be difficult. I love the color, flavor and crunch they add to this fruit salad. So here is one way to cut and deseed your pomegranates. Remember they can stain so take care about what you wear and use a plastic cutting board, as it can stain wood.
Now if you don’t want to deal with taking the time do this or the mess, you can buy the arils already deseeded.
This is an easy fruit salad to make the way you love.
If you have any leftovers I recommend taking out the bananas before putting in the fridge, they’ll be really mushy as leftovers. The rest will be keep perfectly for 2 days. Freeze any leftovers to use in smoothies.
These are incredible tasty ways to get more fruit in your diet! Try them today!
