Produce this week was plentiful and we got lots of pineapple, kiwi, oranges, and mangoes. So I decided to make an old favorite, a favorite that brings me to summertime, a place I need to be right now. Tired of this crazy weather! You? If so, give this a try, it will lift your spirits and seriously boost your vitamin C!
Tropical Fruit Salad
adapted from Vegetarian Times
Mix together the following for the fruit salad:
- 1 medium pineapple, cored and cubed
- 2 medium mangoes, cubed
- 2 oranges, segmented or sliced
- 3 kiwi, sliced
Combine these indgredients for the dressing:
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 3 tbs sugar
- 2 tbs orange juice
- 2 tsp. lime zest (my boys don't care for it, so I leave it out)
Toss the salad with the dressing. Put it in the fridge for about 20 for the flavors to blend.
(My camera is getting fixed, so I apologize that I don't have a picture of the salad that I made.)
