Winter Fruit Salad
This Winter Fruit Salad is just what you need when it’s been cold for months and you are dreaming of warm summer days spent eating giant bowls of fruit…or that just us?! For this recipe, we paired together accessible winter fruit with a delicious and tangy greek yogurt dressing with poppy seeds to make the most for the best cold weather sweet salad.
What’s in it?
We included some of the most commonly available winter fruit. Feel free to substitute in what you have. We loved the addition of bananas here, but don’t use very ripe bananas or they can turn mushy quickly. Use bananas that have just turned yellow.
- Pomegranate Arils
What other fruit can be added?
Most fruit would work well in this salad! You can change it out for whatever is in season or what is available for you.

The name of the game for this dressing is EASY! Just mix up all of the ingredients in a bowl and add to your cut up fruit.
Here are the ingredients:
- Greek Yogurt (feel free to use dairy or dairy-free)
