Believe it or not….people are happy to have something fresh and healthy on the New Year’s Eve spread after a past month of being surrounded by heavier foods. I have the perfect dish to add to the spread:
The great thing about it is that it’s so simple….but there is something magical about these 3 seasonal fruits coming together. Trust me, this will get rave reviews. Plus, these quick side has a magnificent nutrition profile: pineapple has anti-inflammatory benefits, kiwi’s nutrients protect DNA, and pomegranate is amazing for blood health. And, it’s so gorgeous…I find myself taking this to every winter gathering and I always leave with an empty bowl!
I like this Detox Fruit Salad at room temperature, but other people may prefer it cold. Either way, store it covered in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it. The great thing is that none of these fruits will change color nor oxidize in the waiting process!
PS – I have loved all of the post and sharing about my recipes that you have enjoyed on Facebook! Thank you so much for the feedback. I would love to motivate you for healthy eating on Instagram and Pinterest, too!
This combination was made up by my inspiring niece and chef-in-training, Gracie. Thank you Gracie!
