According to research from Calorie Control Council, the average American easily consumes more than 2,000 calories and 81 grams of fat (much of it being saturated fat) from a typical Super Bowl Sunday menu. Trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle while tailgating or at a viewing party can be a challenge. That’s why I often balance out my Super Bowl dishes with healthy and wholesome snacks. If you’re getting ready for this week’s game, my suggestion is a winter fruit salad.

This salad is a real crowd-pleaser, from babies to adults and everyone in between, and a welcome sweet and tart addition to the heavier fare that’s served on game day. I include all of the season’s bounty, including kiwi, oranges, red grapes and a sprinkling of pomegranate arils. You can get creative with red and green grapes, green or golden kiwi, and a variety of citrus like Cara Cara oranges, blood oranges and pummelos, depending on what your local grocer carries. To make the presentation really eye-catching, arrange the fruit on a wooden cutting board. This colorful salad provides fiber, potassium, vitamin C and other immune-boosting nutrients.

What you’ll need for an average-sized gathering: four oranges, four kiwi, one bag of grapes and one pomegranate. Persimmon is another one of my favorite winter fruits, especially if you have want to impress your guests with a fruity fun fact.

Disclosure: I work with Sunkist citrus. I was not compensated to include citrus in this post. But I sure do love winter fruit salad!
