Fruits and nuts go together like peas and carrots. This dried fruit and nut salad with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate vinaigrette is a perfect salad to serve for the holiday Tu B'Shevat, otherwise known as the New Year for trees or Jewish Arbor Day. The day is celebrated by enjoying nature, planting trees and eating dried fruits and nuts. You don't have to wait until Tu B'Shevat to enjoy this hearty salad, though.
Summertime is the best time to enjoy a host of in-season fruits. But this salad, chock full of fruit like strawberries, cherries, blueberries, grapes and watermelon, can be recreated nearly anytime of year by using frozen fruit or tossing together fruits that are available at your local grocery or farmer's market. You can even supplement with canned fruit — but be sure to use fruit packed in its own juices versus with heavy syrup.
Enjoy a fruit salad in a totally new way by turning it into a sandwich. From a waffle with hazelnut chocolate spread topped off with strawberries, bananas and blueberries to a chicken salad packed with grapes or mandarin oranges, adding fruit salad to sandwiches is a great way to sneak in some extra nutrients into every meal. Both kids and adults can appreciate that.
Summer isn't the only time you can enjoy a fresh and delicious fruit salad. Take advantage of winter to enjoy in-season fruits like oranges, grapefruit, pomegranate, pears, apples and more. A winter salad can be as simple as combining these fruits. But if you're looking for more in-depth ways to add winter fruit salads into your cold-weather recipe repertoire, we've got you covered.
They say you eat with your eyes first. So why not entice your family (and friends, party guests, office co-workers, you know) to eat more fruit by dressing it up with beautiful (and edible!) flowers? Toss together a simple salad with multiple melon varieties such as watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe and then top it off with delicate pansies. When selecting pansies for your salad, make sure they are chemical and pesticide free.
