I introduced this Winter Fruit Salad at my “Fall Harvest” cooking class. the combination of fruits and spices is perfect for anytime . . . but especially cold weather. Though it is served cool, at room temperature, it’s savory blend of flavors will warm you up on any winter day.
This is very light, simple to prepare and is perfect to serve with a heavier meals. Another option is desert. I love this so much that I serve it as a appetiser or as a stand-alone dessert.
