Fruit Salad with Citrus-Cilantro Dressing
Tropical fruits swim in a honey-citrus dressing flavored with the distinctive aroma of cilantro. Serve this versatile salad with brunch, lunch, dinner or as a light dessert.
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained (or better yet, 2 1/2 to 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks)
3 grapefruits, peeled and sectioned
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 mango, pitted, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup lime juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons honey
- Combine pineapple, grapefruit, strawberries and mango in a large serving bowl; set aside.
- In a small saucepan, combine orange juice, lime juice and cilantro. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain and discard cilantro. Stir in honey. Pour over fruit mixture and toss until evenly coated.
Makes 8 servings.
Tip: Try adding some sweetened shredded coconut.
