It’s officially winter and the Christmas holiday is just days away. But unfortunately, it’s also cold and flu season. I’ve been refilling my hand sanitizer, taking my elderberry, and nourishing my body to try and protect myself from unwanted germs and illness.
My husband and I would rather protect our bodies naturally, so I’ve been stocking the house with vitamin-rich foods – stocks, vegetables, lean meats, and fruits. Once the fridge was filled with fruit, I immediately thought about an immune boosting fruit salad I made this time last year.
Not only is this fruit salad delicious and full of nutrients, it can easily be turned into a festive dessert for your holiday table! It’s made with kiwi, clementines, pomegranate arils, blueberries, and pineapple.
- Kiwi: contains vitamin C and fiber
- Clementines: contains antioxidants and vitamin C
- Pomegranate: contains vitamins, minerals, and immune boosting properties
- Blueberries: a top antioxidant superfood
- Pineapple: loaded with vitamins and contains immune boosting properties
Christmas Fruit Salad Wreath
Once you cut up your fruit, it can be arranged and layered to look like a Christmas wreath. I even added some rosemary garnish to give it a more wreath-like appearance. In the middle of the salad, I placed a bowl of fruit dip. Obviously not as healthy as eating the fruit itself, but – hey – it’s the holidays!
Obviously the first step in prepping this fruit salad wreath is cutting up all of the fruit. I cut the pineapple with star cookie cutters for a cute touch!
Then, I arranged the fruit on a wood slice lined with parchment paper (you can use a round platter or plate). Once the wreath was arranged, I added the fruit dip in the middle.
- 4-5 kiwis, peeled and sliced
- 2 clementines, peeled and separated
- 1 cup pineapple, cut into stars
- Pomegranate arils
- Optional: fresh rosemary sprigs, fruit dip
- Arrange fruit on a round plate or platter starting with the kiwi slices and layering with the other fruits to create a wreath.
- If desired, add sprigs of fresh rosemary around the edge of the fruit salad and place a bowl of fruit dip in the center of the wreath.
- Serve immediately.
This fruit salad can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until it’s time to serve. Wrap up any leftovers or store in an airtight container or bowl in the fridge.
