Chilled Tutti Frutti Poppy Seed Salad

Photo: Levi Brown
Prep time 15 mins
Total time 1 hr, 15 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups fruit, 1 1/2 tbsp dressing)
Sometimes all we need to entice us to eat more fruit is a fresh flavor combination. Serve this minty, refreshing crowd-pleaser well chilled. You can swap out any of the fruit we use and sub in your own favorites (we used about 10 cups here).

  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons rice-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 small pineapple, cut up
  • 1 mango, sliced
  • 2 apricots, peaches, or plums
  • 4 cups assorted cherries, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
