Ingredient Tips: Substitute or add other red or green fruit like strawberries or pomegranate arils for even more nutritious festive fruit salad.This recipe calls for ¼ cup of honey but sometimes we find that to be too sweet so feel to tweak it to your own preference. You can find dried cherries at the grocery store near the raisins. I like to buy mine in bulk at Costco. Sometimes Aldi’s has them too for a lower price so if you have an Aldi’s nearby, look for dried cherries (and other dried fruit) there!Make Ahead Tip:This fruit salad is naturally make ahead and can be made up to a day in advance. If you want to prep just part of it ahead, even just taking the grapes of the stem and washing them the day before will help save just a little bit of time before assembling all of the ingredients.
