Festive Fruit Salad
While we all love the holidays, we DON’T love the heaviness that comes with big Christmas roasts or holiday hams. So skip the sluggishness this year. Go with a lighter, bright holiday brunch. This festive fruit salad is a great side dish to the main course.
It’s incredibly easy to customize according to your tastes.
8 cups assorted fruit slices and chunks (apple, pear, banana, kiwi, orange, peach, plum, berries)
1 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. lime juice
½ cup pomegranate seeds (substitute sliced almonds or pumpkin seeds)
1 tbsp. mint leaves or a pinch of dried mint
In a large bowl combine fruit. In a small bowl whisk together honey, lime juice, and pomegranate seeds. Pour over salad and gently toss. Top with mint and serve immediately.
