Ingredients Needed:

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.

  • Mandarins
  • Bananas
  • Kiwis
  • 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!
