This winter fruit salad is wonderfully refreshing and loaded with all the best fruits of Autumn and Winter. It is perfect for parties because the citrus prevents browning (crisp and pretty even after 4-6 hours in the refrigerator).

The “dressing” is lip-smacking good! It’s sweetened with honey so there is no processed sugar here. Everyone will love you for making this, especially now that we are all watching our waistlines in the new year! 😉

You’ll definitely get a healthy dose of fruit with this salad and you’ll be running for a refill! The combination of lemon, lime and honey makes the most amazing salad dressing and it draws out the naturally sweet and tangy flavors in each bite. You will want this syrup on all of your fruit salads!

Winter Fruit Salad Ingredients:

1 pound (5 count) Clementine oranges, peeled and separated into segments
2 pears, cored and sliced
2 apples, cored and sliced
1 large pomegranate, seeded (1 to 1 1/2 cups arils or seeds)**
4 kiwis, peeled and slicedj

On Substitutions: You can add banana if you like – it is an inexpensive way to bulk up the salad for a larger crowd. The color and flavor of mango would be a nice add-in here as well.

How to Make Winter Fruit Salad:

1. In a large mixing bowl combine all of the prepared fruit – 5 segmented clementines, 2 sliced pears, 2 sliced apples, pomegranate seeds, and 4 sliced kiwis.

2. In a measuring cup, stir together 3 Tbsp honey, 2 Tbsp lemon juice and 2 Tbsp lime juice, until honey is dissolved. If your citrus was cold and honey is not dissolving, warm it for 10 seconds in the microwave to dissolve easier.

3. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss gently to combine. Serve right away or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 6 hours.
