This Winter Fruit Salad is full of delicious, seasonal winter fruit. Eating fruit in the winter doesn’t have to be boring!
Other than the lack of sunshine, one of my least favorite things about winter is the dismal produce section. When we had a brunch for our Bible study, recently, I really wanted to add some fruit to the selection. Something lighter and more healthy than so much of the winter food we eat.
I usually try to shop for seasonal produce. While I LOVE strawberries, buying them at this time of year is always disappointing. Like other produce that isn’t in season, you’re more buying the idea of the fruit, since there’s very little flavor in out of season fruits. Because I wanted a fruit salad that actually tasted good, I decided to put together one packed full of winter’s season fruit, so I created this Winter Fruit Salad.
This is also a really simple fruit salad to make, which is important to me in this busy season of my life. Winter Fruit Salad can be thrown together in about 10 minutes.
If you hesitate to make a fruit salad that included pomegranates because you feel like it’s a pain to get the pomegranate arils out of the fruit, you’ll want to check out this post on how to cut open a pomegranate the easy way.

Don’t do dairy? No worries! Winter Fruit Salad is delicious without the yogurt, too!
- 1 pomegranate **
- 1 pear
- 2 apples
- 3 mandarin oranges
- 1 C. honey yogurt or vanilla yogurt, (optional, leave out if dairy-free)
- Remove all of the seeds from the pomegranate, and place in a medium sized bowl.
- Fine chop the pear and apples, and add them to the bowl.
- Remove skin from mandarin oranges, then cut each section into 3, so the pieces are bite sized.
- Carefully stir in yogurt, trying not to break up the pomegranate or oranges.
- Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve. If refrigerated, stir before serving.
