Fruit Salad Recipes

Cinnamon Orange Slices
Spinach salad got you down? Pile your plate with a fresh fruit salad instead! Using seasonal fruit and easy, homemade dressings, we came up with nine fabulous fruit salads that are perfect for your next potluck.

Italian Fruit Salad

Aiming to impress? Try the no-fail combo of fresh basil and seasonal fruit. The bright herb enhances even subtle fruits, like watermelon and grapes, letting them take center stage. Tossed in a lightly sweet honey dressing, this fruit salad can double as dessert.

Cucumber-Honeydew Salad with Feta

Sprigs of dill and chopped onion give this cucumber-melon fruit salad a Mediterranean vibe. Serve it in late summer or early fall when melons are at their best.

Persimmon, Blood Orange, and Pomegranate Salad

You may not eat these fruits every day, but when you combine them with arugula and a fruity vinaigrette, you'll be craving this salad all the time.

Honey-Rum Fruit Salad

Cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwi, grapes...all of our favorite fruits play a role in this bright salad! To really help the fresh fruit shine, we added a drizzle of lime juice, rum, and honey vinaigrette. Oh, and a few sprigs of fresh mint, naturally.

Fresh Citrus and Cranberry Salad

The cranberries in this salad may make you dream of Thanksgiving dinner, but there's no reason why you can't enjoy this recipe all winter long. If you do want to serve this fruit salad at your holiday feast, it can be made up to 2 days in advance to save you time on the big day.

Gingered Fruit Compote

This ginger-spiced fruit salad is the spruce-up your potluck needs. Allow an hour of chill time for the flavors to mingle.

Salmon Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette

Strawberry lovers, this salad was made just for you! A double dose of strawberries in the dressing and sprinkled over salad greens goes great with salmon or even grilled chicken. Don't forget to sprinkle a few chopped pecans on top for crunch!

Blackberry Salad with Creamy Feta

Sweet, juicy blackberries hold court over pickled onions and salty feta in this umami-inspired fruit salad. If you like spice, add a layer of heat with crushed red pepper.

Corn and Blueberry Salad

Nothing says summer like sweet corn and fresh blueberries, and this salad has both—plus crunchy summer cucumbers! Of course, such a bright salad needs an equally zesty vinaigrette, so we mixed together lime juice, olive oil, honey, and cumin.

Apple, Celery Root, and Fennel Salad

Fruit salads aren't just for summer—this apple salad is best eaten in the fall when apples, endive, and celery root are all in season. Topping this autumn salad is a delicious honey-mustard dressing (we won't tell if you start using it on everything).

Apple Pecan Salad

Before serving on a bed of greens, apple halves are brushed with butter and sprinkled with brown sugar and pecans, then baked to tender perfection. A zesty vinaigrette turns this recipe into a side dish, but we won't blame you if you want to serve the apples for dessert.

Grains & Fruit Summer Salad

Turn fruit salad into a main-dish meal by adding grilled shrimp or chicken to this loaded recipe. To take this salad to the next level, use fresh summer produce from your garden or farmer's market instead of store-bought blueberries, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini.

Mango, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

This tangy salad isn't just about fruit—it's also about tomato and avocado! If you want to add more veggies, you can serve this salad over a bed of lettuce leaves, but we love it all on its own.

Watermelon Salad

The gelatin mold is back, and trust us, this time it's chic. Vibrant slices of chilly watermelon gelatin are filled with fruit for an even juicier bite. Top with feta cheese for a savory contrast.

Fennel and Orange Salad

Stop guests in their tracks with this stunning citrus-based fruit salad. Crisp bites of fennel are an easy but transformative ingredient, adding a fresh, anise-like flavor.

Fruit Bowl Salad with Honey-Mint Dressing

Want a classic fruit salad? This is your recipe. Take bite-size pieces of your favorite fruit and toss them in our easy honey-mint dressing.

Fresh Fruit with Citrus-Mint Dressing

Just four ingredients make this fruit salad simply delicious. Toss segments of your favorite citrus fruits with orange juice, honey, and mint, then enjoy.

Cinnamon Orange Slices

Need a last-minute potluck recipe? Laced with cinnamon, this sweet fruit salad will go perfectly with tangy coleslaws.
