This was an easy and tasty fruit salad. I made it for a potluck and everyone liked it. I used apricots instead of prunes and mixed cranberries and raisens.
I made a ton of this for a brunch because I wanted the leftovers for the next day. Fat chance. I took Jessie's suggestion to heart and loved the colorful addition made by using 1/2 raisins and 1/2 dried cranberries. The only other change I made was to sub quartered Medjool dates for the prunes. Too open for jokes at an 85th birthday party.
I doubled this recipe for a potluck with a Caribbean theme. It was a big hit! Everyone raved about the salad and how well it went with the other items at the dinner (dishes like black beans & rice, salmon with fresh salsa, and jerk chicken). The crunch of the apple nicely offsets the softer fruits. Next time I make this I'll probably replace some of the raisins with dried cherries or dried cranberries. Thanks!
