Make a Masterpiece! Fruit Salad Recipes For Every Occasion and Meal


Visitors: 622

What can be eaten with every meal? Breakfast, lunch AND dinner? What can be served at nearly every occasion?

Did you guess fruit salad? You would be right!

Fruit salad is delicious, easy to prepare and nutritious. It can be made using fresh or canned fruit, and customizing is easy! Just don't put in the kinds of fruit that you don't like; and add as many kinds as you do!

Although fruit salad is eaten around the world, the way in which it is prepared varies from country to country. In some places, fruit salad is enjoyed with a bit of spice added to it. Other places, such as Europe, add mayonnaise to theirs (Waldorf salad anyone?)

Below is a fruit salad recipe that gets spiced up with the use of cardamon or nutmeg, your choice. It's a bit out of the ordinary as far as fruit salad goes, give it a try though, and it might just become one of your favorites!

Spicy Fruit Salad

What you need:

* 1 large orange, peeled and sectioned

* 1 medium pear, cubed

* 2 bananas, sliced

* 1 cup red or purple grapes

* 1/2 cup diced prunes

* 1/3 cup walnuts, toasted

* 1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt

* 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

* 1/8 tsp ground cardamon or nutmeg

What you do:

In a medium bowl, combine orange, pear, banana, grapes, prunes, and walnuts.

Prepare dressing by mixing together the yogurt, cinnamon and cardamon (or nutmeg) until blended.

Just before serving add dressing to fruit and stir to combine.
