Looking for a simple, healthy side dish to bring to a holiday gathering or winter potluck? Don’t you worry; I’ve got you covered. This colorful, easy-to-throw-together Winter Fruit Salad will satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, without any added sweeteners of any kind. And just about everyone, with any dietary restrictions, can enjoy it, as it’s Paleo, Whole30, AIP, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free. It’s just packed with the best fresh winter fruits that everyone loves.

How to make this Easy Winter Fruit Salad

First, grab some fresh fruits from your favorite local grocery store:

  • 2 Fuji apples, cored and sliced
  • 4 clementine oranges, peeled and torn into slices
  • 4 kiwi, peeled, halved and sliced
  • 14 oz unsweetened canned pineapple chunks, drained and juice reserved
  • 4 Tbsp reserved pineapple juice from the can

Then, wash and prep all the ingredients. Add to a large serving bowl and toss to combine. Serve fresh or refrigerate for 20 minutes for a cool, crisp fruit salad.

This fruit salad is best when served fresh, but it will store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a few days. The juices will settle on the bottom, so be sure to toss to coat before serving again. And fair warning: the kiwi will start to get soggy if it sits too long, so be sure to eat any leftovers quickly.

Variations

Looking for a way to jazz up this Easy Winter Fruit Salad a bit? Here are some fun ideas:

  • Add some pomegranate seeds for a bright red pop of color.
  • Mix up the fruit a bit. Pears make a great substitute for the apples. Or choose a different kind of apple, if Fuji aren’t your favorite. Grapefruit also makes a great sub for the clementine oranges.
  • If you want a bulkier salad without too much extra work, add some sliced bananas.
  • If everyone at the party can enjoy nuts and seeds, try adding some for a bit of crunch. Chopped pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds or even cashews would be great in this fruit salad.
  • Add some freshly torn mint leaves for a pop of green and a jolt of fresh flavor.
  • If everyone at the party can enjoy dairy, some fresh crumbled feta would also be great in this fruit salad. Especially with some chopped walnuts or pecans and fresh mint. Mmm!
