Just plain fruit salad, nothing fancy, just pure fruit. This is great to make up and have in the fridge. It lasts about 5 days without getting too mushy.
- 1 (15 ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice
- 1 apple (peeled, cored and diced)
- 1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges
- 1 (15 ounce) can pink grapefruit slices (cut in half)
- 1 pint blueberries
- 1 pint raspberries
- 1 pint strawberry (sliced)
- 1 cup green seedless grape, halved
- Mix all fruits together, juice and all and enjoy.
- Note you can add banana to this, however, add it at serving time to individual servings.
I used all fresh fruit (Valencia oranges for canned mandarins) and included everything but the blueberries. I also added some red grapes with the green. A small-emphasis on small, amount of freshly ground cloves was added (probably no more than 1/16 teaspoon.) Why cloves? I read somewhere online that one of the flavors in Juicy Fruit Gum is clove. True or not I thought that sounded good for this recipe. The salad does taste better the next day but then by that time the fruit has started to soften. That citric acid is going to break down the fruit and quickly especially the bananas. Probably best to eat the salad same day it is prepared. Thanks! Will make again soon in the summer when local berries are more abundant, including blueberries and blackberries.
This was delicious with all fresh fruit. It will be 5 stars that way! I made this properly food combined as per http://www.momssoapbox.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/food_combining.jpg with all the fruits I had on hand. They included, fresh pineapple, navel oranges, fresh pink grapefruit and red seedless grapes. I squeezed in the left over juice from the peels and pith. Great for our slight cold to get better. I would make this again using fresh fruit only. Made for RECIPE TAG GAME in Kittencal's forum.
I couldn't locate raspberries at this time of year but managed a fresh pineapple with the rest so scooped out half of it and presented my fruit salad inside it. An excellently healthy dessert. Please see my Rating System: 4 excellent stars for a very tasty and refreshing recipe. Thanks!
