Winter Fruit Salad Recipe

This winter fruit salad is perfect for dessert during the week or even on your holiday table!

Persimmons and pomegranates were simply born to be eaten together. They are a pairing like no other and every year I look forward to making this salad. It’s truly an explosion of sweet deliciousness. The tart sweetness from the pomegranate really plays up the milder flavors of the persimmons.

If your fruit is very sweet and ripe, the lemon juice adds a fantastic accent to this salad. But if they are less sweet, it’s probably best to leave it out. Use your judgment here. Either way, this simple combination of flavors will not be a disappointment.

Please know that this salad must be eaten shortly after it is made. It will not last overnight, even in the fridge. The persimmons brown very quickly. So if you don’t think you can eat all of this, cut the recipe in half or even quarter it. Adjust it to how much you think you can eat the same day. Enjoy!

  1. I’ve never had a persimmon before. Can you describe the taste? Does the taste related/remind you of something more familiar?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      They are very mild in flavor, but also very sweet if properly ripe. I don’t really have a comparison for you, I’m sorry.

  2. AHHH… yes. Thanks for THAT!

  3. graciouspantry says:

    Try refreshing your page…?

  4. graciouspantry says:

    Refresh your page. It should be there now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Thanks SOOOOOOOOOOO much for this! I love pomegranates but hate to get the seeds out. This is AWESOME!

  6. Karolina Zielinski Riddick says:

    This salad looks amazing…can’t wait to try!

  7. cschillero says:

    Never had persimmons, excited to try.

  8. graciouspantry says:

    How odd! You have to hit it pretty hard, and yes, the spoon should be heavy. Sorry it didn’t work for you!

  9. graciouspantry says:

    Glad you liked it! No, you don’t want to eat the skin or the white membrane inside.

  10. Krystal Bealing says:

    Delicious! Definitely needed the fresh lemon juice for that extra kick!

    How long do Pomegranates keep for? I think between the avocado pesto alfredo and this winter harvest fruit salad, I now have dinner!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Brooke – Depends. Are you talking about a whole fruit with the peel in tact or the fresh seeds?

  14. My mom said she is absolutely in love with this salad. She made it about 5 times, and said it even works for a dessert. Guess I’m off to the store to find some persimmons. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shanna – Wonderful! I hope you enjoy it as well!

  15. does it matter which kind of persimmon you use? I know there are 2 different kinds, but until recently had trouble finding them, so don’t know much about the differences between them.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you enjoy the salad!

  16. Debbie Menconi says:

    How many persimmons and pomegranates did you have to buy to make this?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Debbie – Depends on their size, but I would get about 6 persimmons to be safe. You don’t have to be hugely exact with this, so a tiny bit more or less will still work fine. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚
