A Refreshing Brunch Delight


Citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C along with potassium, fibre and folic acid along with a handful of other B vitamins. Interestingly, kiwi fruit has MORE vitamin C in it than oranges do… and they add such a pretty element to the salad!

This showy Citrus Kiwi Fruit Salad is dressed up with a zesty Honey Lime Vinaigrette and is the perfect way to show your brunch table a bit of love!

Prepare Fruit:

Slice the oranges, pink grapefruits, blood oranges, and kiwis horizontally into about 1/4 inch thick slices. This thickness showcases the beautiful patterns of the fruit. Remove the peels from the oranges, grapefruits, and blood oranges, and the skin from the kiwis.

Arrange Fruit:

Arrange the sliced citrus and kiwi on a serving platter in an attractive pattern. You can layer them or arrange them in a fan shape for visual appeal.

Make Dressing:

In a small container, mix together the olive oil, freshly squeezed lime juice, white wine vinegar, honey, and a pinch of salt. Whisk or shake well to ensure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Drizzle Dressing:

Pour the prepared honey lime vinaigrette over the arranged citrus and kiwi slices. Ensure the dressing is evenly distributed over the fruit.


This salad is best served immediately to enjoy the freshness of the fruit and the flavors of the dressing. Place it on the brunch table and let everyone dig in!


  • Use a sharp knife to slice the fruit evenly and to showcase its natural beauty.
  • Feel free to customize the fruit selection based on your preferences or seasonal availability.
  • For a variation, you can add other fruits like berries or pineapple to the salad.
  • Adjust the sweetness of the dressing by adding more or less honey according to your taste.
  • If preparing in advance, store the dressing separately and drizzle it over the fruit just before serving to prevent it from becoming soggy.
  • Experiment with different herbs like basil or cilantro for alternative garnishes.

Enjoy this refreshing and vibrant Citrus Kiwi Fruit Salad with your loved ones, and make your Mother’s Day brunch extra special!
