VARIATIONS ON WINTER FRUIT SALAD

  • Nuts: You can easily customize your salad to fit your personal taste. I recommend trying chopped nuts like pecans, walnuts, or cashews.
  • Coconut: Shredded coconut, toasted or un-toasted would add a fun flavor to the recipe.

TIPS FOR MAKING WINTER FRUIT SALAD

  • Start by cutting all the fruit at once. This makes the assembly of the salad way easier, and it makes clean up a breeze.
  • Once the fruit is cut don’t let them sit out for too long or they can start to oxidize and turn brown.
  • If you have leftover fruit salad

FRUIT RECIPES YOU CAN GIFT FOR THE HOLIDAYS:

HOW LONG IS WINTER FRUIT SALAD GOOD?

  • Serve: Winter Fruit Salad is fine at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
  • Store: Winter Fruit Salad will stay good in the fridge for up to 3 days. To properly refrigerate this salad, seal it up in something airtight, like plastic wrap or a freezer bag, and make sure to keep moisture away from it.
  • Freeze: Freezing fresh fruit for the purposes of smoothies is great, but if you plan to thaw this out to eat as a salad I’d highly recommend against it.
