Winter Fruit Salad With Lemon Poppyseed Dressing I have a new obsession with winter fruits! I usually wait until summer fruits are in season, but this year I decided to embrace winter fruits. Oh my goodness, what have I been missing out on? These winter fruits are sweet and amazing! 

The other day I was doing a photography post on How To Apply The Rule of Thirds To Your Photography, and I needed a good example for this post. So I pulled out my fruit and whipped up a quick fruit salad.

I have to admit, I kind of stumbled upon this recipe by accident (those are the best recipes usually). When I was shooting this salad for my photo shoot, there was something missing in the picture. It just didn’t look appetizing enough!

So I decided to whip up a quick dressing to give the photo the wow factor! Now I was expecting the wow factor with the photo, but was super surprised when I got the wow factor with this delicious salad dressing! When I tasted this fruit salad with the amazing lemon poppyseed dressing, I knew I had hit a home run and knew I just had to share this delicious recipe with you all.

In this recipe I have added bananas, pomegranate and clementines but please feel free to add just about any winter fruit you would like. The recipe for the lemon poppy seed dressing makes a little over 1/3 cup. If you are making a large fruit salad, you might want to double this batch of dressing.
