Breakfast Winter Fruit Salad

The Power of Organic

Freshness, traceability, and transparency of ingredients are all attributes that today’s consumers expect. Organic offerings can guarantee these top-quality standards to attract customers. In fact, when you highlight your menu items as organic, consumers are 55% more likely to purchase it over a traditional offering.

Feature organic ingredients at the peak of freshness by utilizing seasonal produce. Kale salad is one of the fastest-growing breakfast items, with a 400% increase on morning menus. A combination of organic greens, mint, apples, pears, and pomegranate is a fresh, light breakfast that will set your menu apart in the winter months.

Looking to prepare a fruit salad in advance? Toss your cut apples and pears in an acidic juice to reduce oxidation before refrigerating. Grapefruit makes a nice compliment to the seasonal flavors in the winter salad below.
