Lovely dessert for summer when there are so many fruits to choose from! Made for ZWT #7.
I`m in the Tropics! At least I feel like that with this Refreshingly healthy fruit salad! I did used fresh lychees, and fresh vanilla bean. Canned guava and passion fruit juice in place of the granadilla pulp.
Thanks!! Made for ZWT 2011
I needed to use up some of my tropical fruit, so this was a perfect recipe to do it! I used watermelon, papaya, canned peaches, maraschino cherries, and pineapple. I enjoyed it. Thanks! Made for ZWT#7 by a Food.Commando.
Thank you for sharing your fruit salad recipe. I used papaya, mango, canned peaches, watermelon, red grapes and white grapes. I loved the vanilla added to it and I added a little bit of honey in place of the honey since some of my fruit wasn't really sweet enough. Reviewed for ZWT4 Dessert Challenge.
*Beautiful* -- thank you Zurie for sharing your South African fruit salad secrets. I love the "rule of six" and chose papaya, pineapple, cherries, lychees, peaches, bananas and kiwi. I mixed Goya passion fruit pulp and the vanilla and it added a wonderful flavor to the fruit without any added sugar. Your description is very inspiring and there's no reason to settle for an ordinary fruit salad again!
This is exactly how my Mum taught me to make fruit salad......obviously from her South African days! I sometimes add lime or lemon juice to the liquid base as well. Mum, Dad, Malcolm and I enjoyed this today, after out main luncheon.....with light creme fraiche - just wonderful. I used: papaya, pawpaw, guava, pineapple, banana, lychees, kiwi, apricots, peaches, passion fruit pulp and melon. NOT all of it was fresh fruit, some was tinned and some was frozen - but as a combination it all worked very well. I subbed the sugar with local French wildflower honey and DID add the vanilla, as well as a few cardamom seeds.....for a lift in the flavours. This made enough for 4 people with second helpings....so, it would work for 6 to 8 people. Made for ZWT4 and the Dessert Challenge - another fine recipe from the Eastern Cape - thanks Zuri! FT:-)
This is a wonderful base for a fruit salad. We used cantaloupe, watermelon, bananas, apricots, kiwi fruit, pineapple, strawberries, green grapes. My DD accidentally threw out the juice off the apricots so I used a cup of tamarind juice left over from last nights fruit salad recipe. I put the vanilla in but no sugar. It was not necessary. Made for ZWT4.
I had to vary the fruits to what I had on hand so I tried grapes, strawberries, orange (with pith carefully removed), canteloupe, honey dew and fresh peach (didn't have canned). I love the vanilla in it. I've never tried vanilla in a fruit salad. Also for a small kick of iron and calcium I used molasses as my sweetener instead of sugar (and to qualify for the ZWT4 African dessert challenge). I really wish I could have found some passion fruit (granadilla) because I love it and I know it would have been great in it. I used some of the juice from the orange scraps to add a little liquid to the mixture since I didn't have any canned juices.
This is a lovely way to end a summer meal. I replaced the sugar with a wee bit of honey and thought the addition of vanilla was nice. I used a banana, a mango, honeydew, papaya, cherries, and kiwi. Made for ZWT4.
DH loves fruit salad and this one was superb! The vanilla brought out the flavors of the fruit without overpowering them. Against advice in the recipe, I used some strawberries, along with a perfectly ripe cantaloupe, kiwi, a beautiful mango, a banana that was too far gone and actually 'melted' into the juice and some canned apricots. We'll be making this again and again with summer's bounty. I didn't use the called-for sugar, opting for the fruit juice to add any needed sweetening. Worked perfectly!
