Winter-y Fruity Salad

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

This past weekend my friends and I threw a brunch bash and feasted on a handful of my favorite dairy free breakfast recipes. The side dish that stole the show, though, was this winter fruit salad. It’s hard to find my favorite fruits in the dead of winter in Virginia and I very much dislike cantaloupe and it’s typical watery fruit salad variations. This recipe was perfect for a snow day brunch! Original recipe inspiration found here. I tweaked a few things to fit my preferences.

INGREDIENTS: (Adjust amounts to your preference)

  • 1 pineapple, cubed
  • 3-4 kiwis, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 3 clementines
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • A huge spoonful of honey
  • Half a squeezed lemon
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • A few shakes of poppy seeds (optional but super yummy)


  1. This is a very simple recipe. Mix all of the fruit together.
  2. Drizzle honey, squeeze lemon, and shake poppy seeds on top. Through a few mint leaves in and give the whole mixture a good tossing.
  3. Ta-daaaaaa!

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
