Unique Fruit Salad

Standard

food 963

This is a really nice refreshing unique salad. Cilantro in fruit salad?!?!?! Yep, it just takes it up a lovely notch. My favorite part is ….. the mangos, no no, the cilantro, oh wait, the craisins. Oh. I cannot commit to one favorite. IT is just good.   Let me know IF you try it and what YOU think about it!

* If you are in a hurry, you can chop the fruit/veggies BUT if you have the time be sure to julienne ~ it looks real nice.

Unique Fruit Salad 

1 granny smith apple, julienned
2 carrots, peeled and julienned
1 mango, peeled and julienned
a handful of cilantro, chopped
a handful of craisins
a handful of raisins
1 1/2 oranges, juiced (equalling about 1/2 c.)
sliced almonds, JUST for topping (totally optional)

Mix everything and chill for a few hours to develop flavors. Top each serving with almonds, if you want to. Serve. Enjoy.

Thanks Becky for a yummy recipe!

I am a wife to my wonderful husband. I am a mom to 5 wonderful/busy/crazy/noisey/happy snappy boys. My hobby is cooking and baking, I love to read recipes and organize the recipes I have. I enjoy making food for people and sharing recipes. My husband is not picky and will eat almost anything, my kids are not quite as easy, they can be picky eaters, which has lead me to try to make more “favorite family foods”. I am hoping that through this blog some of my friends and family, or anyone for that matter, will share their favorite recipes too!!! Feel free to email me at favoritefamilyfoods@hotmail.com if you have any questions, suggestions or recipes you would like to share. I look forward to hearing from you! Bobbi

  1. This looks so interesting, I cannot wait to try it! Looks so refreshing and summery. I will let you know what I think

  2. I made this for tonight’s supper. It seemed for perfect since it is 80 degrees out and I need refreshing. I LOVE IT! I tried it before I even chilled it and I could eat the whole salad! I know I will make this over and over this summer. I love crunchy textures and this is just sooo good. Thank you Bobbi for a real winner:)
