How to make this winter fruit salad recipe
Chop and slice. Prepare the fruit and toss into a large mixing bowl.
Stir together. Add the lemon juice, sugar and poppy seeds to the mixing bowl and stir gently to combine.
You will want to place the bowl in the refrigerator to allow the juices to absorb and saturate and merge all the yummy flavors together!
Everything you need to know about this winter fruit salad
Apples, oranges, pears, kiwi, and bananas are all in season during the winter and when combined together truly create a beautiful salad. Bananas are less acidic than the remainder of the ingredients in this salad, if you are not serving this salad immediately I would recommend adding the bananas just before serving.
Once prepared, this winter fruit salad should stay fresh for about 3-5 days. Make sure to store in an airtight container. As the salad sits, the fruit will macerate creating more juices. For best serving results, serve after 15 minutes after preparing.
