Easy Fruit Salad Recipe
This Fruit Salad is just the thing to give you a light, refreshing boost! With a honey lime dressing and vanilla yogurt, grapes, apples, pomegranate, strawberries and raspberries, this salad is refreshing and a great alternative to heavy desserts.
Fruit Salad is so versatile, and with the option to change up dressings and different fruits, it’s easy to please everyone. It’s nice to have an alternative to the fruit salads that are laden with heavy whipping cream and sugar. Not that I don’t love that variety because you know I do, but I like to have a lighter option available for anyone who wants it.
What other fruits can you add to winter fruit salad?
Fruit salad is one of those recipes that is as versatile as you want it to be. A lot of people put blueberries, blackberries, kiwi, oranges, or bananas in the mix.
All of those fruits would make great additions to this easy fruit salad, so pick up whatever looks the best at the store, and go nuts.
How do you keep fruit salad fresh?
Fruit salad will stay as fresh as the most tempermental fruit in the bowl. That means if you add bananas to the mix, you’d better eat this within a couple hours.
If you make this exactly like the recipe states, it’ll keep a few days in the fridge, easily. Make sure you are using fruit before it is on its last legs and it might last a little longer even.
This would be great served after a big slice of this Chicken Lasagna!

Can I make fruit salad the day before I’m serving it?
Probably, but I’d try to avoid it if you can. This is a dish that’s the VERY best when it is made a couple of hours in advance and then it gets to chill in the fridge before you bring it out.
Bonus points if you serve it with this festive Hibiscus Citrus Mimosa!
Should I cut grapes in half for a fruit salad?
I prefer to have the grapes cut for fruit salads. I think that it makes them much easier to eat. Whether or not you should depends on your personal preferences, as well as what size the grapes are that you use in the salad.
