Winter Fruit Salad Keeps Dinner Light And Colorful

Looking for a light and fresh side dish?  Winter fruit salad combines easy-to-find fruits with a tangy dressing for a delightful complement to your chilly weather meal.

Fruit salad is always a popular side to lunch or dinner, but this time of year, it’s hard to find berries and melons at their freshest.  Try a different combination of flavors next time, with the addition of fruits that are easy to find this time of year.

Full of vitamins and flavor, winter fruit salad is the perfect addition to your dinner menu.
