Seasonal Fruit Salad With Creamy Honey Ginger Dressing

Seasonal Fruit Salad With Creamy Honey Ginger Dressing


Whatever the season, nature offers wonderfully delicious fruits to be enjoyed.  So I tried to create a creamy dressing for all seasons using honey and ginger.  This winter fruit salad stars persimmons and pomegranates--and a fruit for all seasons, a Bartlett pear.  Serves 4.

Four steps to remove persimmons seeds:

The Recipe:
Serves 4

Ingredients for fruits:

  • 3 persimmons, ripe (slightly indents when pressed with a finger) and sliced
  • 2-3 Tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 (or more) Bartlett pear, washed, cored and sliced (Leave the skin on.)

Ingredients for creamy honey and ginger dressing, yields 3/4 cups:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp Miracle Whip, light (or mayonnaise)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1" ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice 
  • 1/2 zest from a lemon (optional)

Store honey and ginger dressing in a tight container in the refrigerator.  Flavors should remain fresh for about week.


Slightly toss all fruits in a bowl.  Mix dressing ingredients in a separate bowl.  Add dressing to fruit mixture.  Serve chilled.

Other fruit serving suggestions are mangoes, apples and papayas.
