Holiday Fruit Salad Recipe
This festive fruit salad with lemon poppy seed glaze is both a healthy and yummy crowd pleaser. It is filled with winter fruits like pomegranate and oranges. The lemon poppy glaze is what really tops this recipe off though. The glaze gives this salad a bit of sweetness and is a fun twist. Did we mention that the honey and lemon also help to keep the fruit looking fresh, so it doesn't start to turn brown quickly like often can happen with fruit salad recipes?
