Winter Fruit Salad

Our Winter Fruit Salad

It is time to share with you something amazing! Something more positive than the last few days. I found this recipe at Cooking Classy

Winter Fruit Salad 



3 T. fresh lemon juice (I used bottled)
3 T. granulated sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 T. hone
2 tsp. poppy seeds


8 Mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented (I used two 15 oz. cans, drained)
4 apples, Gala and Golden Delicious (I used all Gala)
4 ripe kiwis, peeled and diced
4 bananas, peeled and sliced
1-1/2 pomegranate arils (I used one large pomegranate. 


1) In a mixing bowl or jar whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.
2) In a large bowl stir the fruit together; cover with the salad dressing and gently toss. Serve immediately for best results.

This recipe made a huge bowl of salad. It says it would serve 10 people. We ate big bowls of it and still had a good size bowl left over.

Darian and I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day and we both thought it was even better chilled and a bit juicier. Yummy!
And it is beautiful too!!


  1. When I was young and helping my mother set the table, she taught me about color for meals. Your beautiful salad reminded me of that conversation. Color can do a lot to make the meal appealing. I just bought kiwis on sale, so I know just what to do with them. Thanks for sharing!

    1. My mom taught me that too. I remember her saying you can't have two foods on the plate the same color. I try to follow that to this day. This salad was lucious!

  2. It looks so yummy and so colorful!!!


  3. Hi Paula - that looks delicious ... I occasionally have fruit with my salad ... love it. Cheers Hilary

  5. For some reason you don't think of putting oil in fruit but this looks really good! I am going to try it!!

    1. I wondered when I was preparing it, about the oil. But it was delicious. Let me know what you think!
