This Easy Grape Clementine Salad recipe is so quick and delicious. It’s packed with fresh ingredients that are available year around, and it’s perfect for potlucks and school lunches.

Butter lettuce leaf filled with a fruit salad made of grapes and clementines sitting on a glass plate.Even though we’ve had a pretty mild winter, our fresh fruit and vegetables are just a memory. Instead of whining, (o.k., I am whining), I thought I would get to work on a salad using fresh ingredients that I do have access to. Hello, Easy Grape Clementine salad. 

Butter lettuce leaf filled with a fruit salad made of grapes and clementines sitting on a glass plate.Fresh fruit and vegetables aren’t always a priority for John. He’s somewhat of a caveman. He’d be happy with a slab of meat on a plate. To heck with the sides. Sometimes I have to get a little creative to inspire him to eat them.

This salad combines fresh fruit, mint, walnuts and a delicious light honey poppyseed dressing. I even got 2 thumbs up from John. I’m sure a whole bowl of this fruit probably sent his system into shock, but he has recovered. I’ll be making this salad all year long.

Butter lettuce leaf filled with a fruit salad made of grapes and clementines sitting on a glass plate.This dressing recipe makes more than you need. It would be just as good drizzled on a lettuce salad, or you could just make a bigger salad. This fruit salad also goes well with the heavier comfort food recipes that are so good this time of year. It’s quick and easy enough that you can get it on your table in no time.

I used this recipe so my clementines didn't go bad and it is now going to be a regular fruit salad for my husband and I. My 9 year old was not a fan of the dressing, she liked picking at it plain. But my partner said he can live off of the salad! Thank you!

Looks like a great salad, Julie! The dressing sounds yummy. The poppy seeds look so pretty on the clementines. I miss summer produce, too. My husband is like yours as far as salads go. I will have to give this one a try!
