‘Tis the season for winter fruits and I am on board! Over the weekend, I spent most of Sunday afternoon in my kitchen making delicious scones and a fun cookie skillet. This time of year always puts me in the mood to bake goodies. Between bites of those decadent treats, I opted to throw together a colorful salad filled with some of my favorite fruits, including pineapple, pomegranate, kiwi, pears, and mandarin oranges. Though the fruit stands on its own, I also experimented with drizzling a homemade poppy seed dressing over top. (My recipe was inspired by this one, though I made several changes. 🙂 )
This fruit salad adds a bright, festive pop of color to any holiday gathering this month. It doesn’t hurt that this beautiful salad is chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber.
Easy on the eyes and nutritious? Count me in!
You can certainly modify the recipe depending on what fruit you have on hand or what is on sale. These fruits are in season right now which means it won’t be hard to find good quality and affordable prices.
If you make this fruit salad this month, tag me in it on social media and use the hashtag #spillingthebeans. I would love to see what you come up with!
