HEALTHY WINTER FRUIT SALAD

Similar to the Tropical Fruit Salad I posted a year ago, this Winter Salad coated with my favorite citrus poppy seed dressing, is just as delicious and irresistible. What is there not to love about fresh and beautiful fruit salad? Loaded with nutrients and vitamins we all need during cold winter months.

This salad is so easy to make but is such an attractive addition to your table. And a healthy snack at any time the day. The serving is big enough to feed a crowd, but if you need smaller portions, simply divide the recipe ingredients. As far as fruit goes, the salad is just as fresh the next day, so if you have leftovers just keep it covered in the fridge and enjoy again.

Ingredients:
2 large – Pomegranates
2 large – Pears
2 large – Persimmons
2 large – Honey Crisp apples
4 – Kiwis
6 – Mandarins

Dressing Ingredients:

I used this same dressing for the Tropical Fruit Salad. In this recipe, however, I switched the mandarin with an orange and used raw honey.
1 large – Orange
½ large – Lemon
¼ cup (60 ml) – raw honey
½ tsp. (1.25 ml) – poppy seeds

Instructions:

TIP: Make the dressing first and store it in the fridge until ready for use. Fruit like pears and apples brown quickly and should be diced last.

1. Wash all fruit. Peel, dice, or slice them.
2. In a large bowl, combine all the fruit together.
3. Pour previously-prepped dressing over the fruit salad.
4. Carefully mix and toss to coat.
Serve right away or cover with an air-tight lid and refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
