This easy fruit salad is a great way to eat seasonal fruit. I made it in Bolivia where papayas are plentiful — as well as all types of fruit.
Fruit salads are a great dessert and a super healthy snack. You can use any fruit you want to make one but you should stick to seasonal fruits in order to keep it as frugal as possible. Here is what you need to make this particular one:
2 cups peeled, seeded and diced papaya
1 large mango – peeled and diced
3 small tangerines – segmented, seeded and halved
2 bananas – sliced
1 green apple – cored and chopped
1 red apple – cored and chopped
3 large tangerines – juiced.
Place the papaya, mango and tangerines in a bowl. Add the tangerine juice. Add the banana and apples and toss to coat well with the juice. You need citrus, passion fruit or pineapple juice to keep the banana and apples from oxidizing. If you want you can sweeten the juice. Serve and enjoy!
You can make this with melon, watermelon, oranges, kiwi, peaches. pineapple, pears, berries or anything you want!
