Refreshing Winter Fruit Salad is easy, healthy, and delicious!
We love eating fruit all winter long, and this Refreshing Winter Fruit Salad is one of our favorite ways to eat it. This fruit salad also stores well, so we can prepare it and have it ready in the fridge whenever we want a sweet, yet healthy snack.
I call it a winter salad because all of these fruits were readily availabe in my grocery store, but it can be made any time of the year. The fresh pineapple and mandarin oranges are available in the winter, but if your store doesn’t have them you could certainly use canned.
Now, I know our doctor has told us to limit fruit, but it is a much better alternative to cake or cookies when we are looking for something sweet to munch. And it is packed with a ton of vitamins, something that is very beneficial to our bodies.
Another thing about this Refreshing Winter Fruit Salad that I love is the fresh pineapple. Have you ever tried fresh pineapple? It is so juicy, sweet, and delicious! It is not quite as tart as the canned type.
This salad is dressed with a super simple two-ingredient dressing consisting of lemon juice and honey. That’s it! With so much flavor going on in there I wanted the dressing to enhance the flavor and not cover it up. And how easy is that?!
Another great salad I make is this Waldorf Pasta Salad w/Pineapples, it also makes a great side dish. This Mandarin Orange & Apple Salad uses canned mandarin oranges. It is super easy and delicious too.
