How long does winter fruit salad last?
Winter fruit salad can be made up to two days before you plan to serve it. You can store it in the refrigerator for one week. I think this salad tastes better after chilling for at least two hours in the refrigerator.
What fruits go well together in winter salads?
You can combine any fruits that sound good to you and are available at your local store. In winter some items are more expensive or unavailable depending on where you live so you may be a little limited in your selection.
The most common fresh fruit available in the wintertime is usually kiwi, pomegranate seeds, oranges, apples, bananas, grapefruits, lemons, papayas, dates, passion fruit, pears, persimmons, kumquats, star fruit, quince, and rambutans.
Your canned fruit options are pineapple, prepared apricots, yellow clingstone peaches, pears, pineapple, cherries, and grapes.
You could also add any dried fruits that you have like dried cranberries, prunes, raisins, apricots, dates and any nuts or seeds you can’t get enough of.
What to put in a winter salad?
