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 poppyseed dressing. I love using honey lime in my fruit salads and it gives it a sweet and tangy coating on the fruit.

I could have eaten almost this entire bowl of fruit by myself and it is always a hit with our family! I know that you are going to love it too!

  1. Hi!

    I made this for Super Bowl and it was delish! I used CaraCara oranges (thats what I had) .and I haved the poppy seeds (and I think that was still too much), But the combo of everything was spot on. And it was nice to have something light and refreshing…and healthy.

  2. This is delicious. I did not add the poppy seeds and replaced the honey with Agave. I like things “limey” so I doubled the lime juice

  3. Thank you for the winter fruit salad recipe. I served it to company as dessert after a hearty beef mushroom barley soup.. it was easy to assemble, colorful and delicious. I suggest adding a bit of watwr or extra honey to the sauce to calm the tartness of the lime juice. I used sesame instead of poppy seeds. My guests loved it!

  4. Tried it for my kid’s bday party – everyone loved it – I added half honey and half maple syrup – delicious – thanks ?
