The crisp, crunchy texture of this Fall Fruit Salad pairs well with its creamy dressing. It uses produce available year round, so enjoy it every season!
Hey, wait a minute…Fall is over, right? Yes. And this fall fruit salad is definitely best when you can get your hands on freshly picked fall produce. Yet it uses ingredients that are readily available year-round (which also happens to be how often I make it). Sharing it with you now means you’ll be ready when fall comes around again (which it seems to do in .00002 milliseconds, amiright?).
This Fall Fruit Salad uses only fresh fruits and a handful of nuts, then a “dressing” of vanilla yogurt mixed with a little maple syrup and cinnamon adds a creamy texture and wonderful flavor. It’s a wonderful side dish but I enjoy it most often for my breakfast.
I find this fall fruit salad to be irresistible. Which is why I go to the “trouble” of dicing an apple and a pear on many mornings. The texture of the crisp pear and apple, the crunch of the pecans and the creaminess of the dressing are an irresistible combination.
And at just 272 calories a serving and very little saturated fat, I feel good about what I’m putting in my body while feeling like I’m indulging just a little!
