Fall fruit salad is full of seasonal fruit and dressed in a bright honey, orange, and poppy seed dressing!
Fresh + Vibrant
Just because it is fall does not mean you stop craving a fresh fruit salad when things like pumpkin and cinnamon spiced dishes are prevalent!
Here in AZ fall/winter is citrus season. That is the time we start enjoying fresh oranges especially.
This fresh and vibrant fall fruit salad incorporates fruit of the season for a tasty side. Apples of course are a fall staple which I included in with our AZ citrus.
Really you can use any fruit that you may find at the grocery store, but the seasonal fruit will taste the best and be the most flavorful. And the poppy seed dressing really brings all of this fruit together!
Making fall fruit salad
It’s beyond easy to do, which makes the recipe even better!
DRESSING. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
FRUIT. Add the fruit for the salad to a large bowl.
TOSS. Pour the dressing over the fruit and toss.
So simple, right!?
Tips + Storing Info
Whenever a recipe calls for zest they are referring to the peel of citrus fruit that has been finely grated. You can buy a “zester” or simply use the smaller side of a cheese grater.
Easily add different fruits to this salad. Sliced strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, clementines, sliced kiwi are all great choices. Include what is in season or what you have in your fridge.
Make this fall fruit salad the day before and keep it stored in the fridge. The citrus from the orange will help keep the apples from browning.
STORE leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 days. It may last even longer but the fruits will not be quite as firm and fresh.
