Whether it is summer or any other season, you can enjoy these delicious fruit salad recipes! All of these recipes are a combination of fruit and some sort of delicious dressing mixed together.
Kelan always pokes fun at me for being a rule follower. One rule I will not follow when making fruit salad is using the fruit that they call for in the recipes. Use whatever fruit you want! I will make the savvy decision and base my fruit on whatever the produce of the week is at Aldi’s.

Everyone loves fruit salad, but who wants to add calories when they are trying to eat healthily. This fruit salad with yogurt is so much healthier for you because they use greek yogurt.

4. Winter Fruit Salad Recipes
Found on Dinner at the Zoo
Just because it is called winter fruit salad doesn’t mean you are restricted to make this healthy fruit salad recipe only in the winter. You can make these fruit salad recipes whenever you wish. Any idea on why they call it winter fruit salad though? Winter fruit salad is made from fruits that are only available during the winter months. I learned something new today! Makes complete sense though.
5. Vanilla Pudding Fruit Salad
Found on Spend with Pennies
What I love about this fruit salad recipe is Holly brings it back to the budget, which is what we here at The Savvy Couple are all about. Fruit can be expensive and the more fruit you add it to the salad the increase in the cost of the recipe. One hack from Holly that I took away was the use of canned fruits. Using the mixture of canned and fresh fruits will stretch out your budget more. #savvy
