This salad would be delicious with a raspberry vinaigrette or a light lemony yogurt based dressing. You can make your own dressing or to save time, use your favorite bottled dressing. I went with a bottled Poppy Seed Dressing.
Salad or Dessert
If you really want to be naughty this Holiday Season…use whipped cream or whipped topping to coat the fruit. Fast. Easy. Delicious.
Perfect for this time of year or anytime of the year. You can substitute 8 peeled and segmented “Cutie” mandarin oranges for the canned mandarin oranges if you prefer. Winter fruit salad can be served as a ‘fruit’ salad or a refreshing dessert.
