Fruit Salad with a Citrus Vanilla Sauce And Giveaway Winner Announced

Fruit Salad with a Citrus Vanilla Sauce And Giveaway Winner Announced

by Pam on April 28, 2013

I served this[1] fruit salad with the spicy Asian Chicken Sandwiches[2] I made for dinner recently and they paired nicely together. The sweet and juicy fruit salad cooled down our mouths after bites of the spicy sandwich. I loved this combination of fruit together. The sauce was a combination of orange and lemon juice & zest along with some brown sugar and vanilla. It reduced down to a very flavorful sauce that topped the fruit perfectly. We all, kids especially, loved this fruit salad.

The giveaway information is at the bottom of this recipe. Congratulations to the winner!!!

Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, orange juice, lemon juice, clementine zest, and lemon zest. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Set aside and let it cool down completely.

Prepare the fruit and combine it in a large bowl. Once the citrus vanilla sauce has cooled down, drizzle on top of the salad, to taste. Toss gently and serve. Enjoy.

Fruit Salad with Honey-Citrus Dressing

Fruit Salad with Honey-Citrus Dressing

by Pam on May 30, 2013

I was making s garlic-citrus flank steak for dinner along with a black bean salad and I decided to make a fresh fruit salad with a honey-citrus dressing to go with them. It was quick and easy to make and a great way to use up some fresh fruit that I had on hand. It was a light, refreshing, and delicious salad that paired perfectly with the rest of the meal.

Combine the orange zest, orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, and honey together in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined. Taste and add more honey if needed.

Combine the pineapple, mango, strawberries, green grapes, blueberries, and blackberries together in a large bowl. Drizzle the fruit salad with the honey citrus dressing, to taste, then toss to coat evenly. Serve and enjoy.
