I love a good fruit salad. Unfortunately, winter is not the time to make a fruit salad full of stone fruit and berries. Winter is the time to celebrate what is in season with this tasty winter fruit salad. It’s packed with kiwi, clementines, pomegranate seeds, and topped with a yummy dressing of honey and lemon. 

The dressing not only makes this winter fruit salad recipe taste extra special, but the citrus prevents browning. So you can make this salad a few hours ahead of time and store it in your refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.
