This Christmas Fruit Salad is full of colorful green and red fruits perfect for serving on Christmas morning. Grapes, kiwi, strawberries, and pomegranate arils make with a light lime honey dressing makes this the perfect appetizer for your holiday spread.
Fruit Salad is a nice refreshing side dish with any breakfast. A fruit salad goes great with pancakes, waffles, or eggs and bacon.
It can also be enjoyed all by itself. We enjoy a pretty hearty breakfast Christmas morning, and this Christmas Fruit Salad is perfect with everything else we serve.
This is loaded with green and red grapes, kiwi, strawberries, and pomegranate arils. I make a very light dressing of honey mixed with fresh squeezed lime juice to toss the fruit in.
How to make Christmas Fruit Salad:
Start by preparing your fruit. Wash the grapes and strawberries. Peel and slice the kiwi. Slice the strawberries.
Mix them all in a large bowl, and then make your dressing. Lightly toss the fruit in the honey and lime juice dressing. Serve and enjoy!
- Green Grapes and Red Grapes - you can use just red or green but I like the multi color look in the salad.
- Kiwi - peeled and sliced
- Strawberries - sliced in half
- Pomegranate Arils - These give the salad the perfect juicy crunch.
- Lime Juice - the lime juice will help your fruit from going bad to quickly
Step One - Wash and slice fruits as desired. Place them in a large mixing bowl.
Step Two - In a small mixing bowl whisk honey with lime juice. Then pour over your fruit and toss to coat fruit in honey and lime juice.
Step Three - Serve or place in the fridge in an airtight container until you are ready to serve. Diced fruit can stay fresh for 5-6 hours in the fridge.
Tips for making Fruit Salad:
- Have fun with the recipe! Use fruits you love and enjoy! Use red or green apples (with the skin on), raspberries, or cherries (pitted of course). Use whatever red and green fruits you have available to you at the grocery store.
- Do not make it too far in advance. Fresh fruits will not last long. This really should be made the day you plan to serve it, and only a few hours in advance. Even in the refrigerator, fresh fruits will not last long.
- For a fancier look, use a trifle dish. Make red and green layers in a trifle dish for a fancier presentation everyone will be WOW'd by!
