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!
