Winter Fruit Salad

The Menu:
Winter Fruit Salad

The Original Recipe:
I was browsing Menus4Moms the other day and found a few recipes that looked good. I tried this out on the family and they really liked it. I used pecans instead (it's what I had), and I didn't have the grapes. It was still really good and light. Something to contrast all of those cookies. Ugh!!

Winter Fruit Salad

 2 oranges, sectioned and cut into bite sizes

 2 bananas, sliced

 1 cups seedless grapes, cut in half

 1 can pineapple chunks, drained (reserve juice)

 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

 2 tbsp brown sugar

 whipped cream, optional

Mix fruit and nuts together in a medium sized bowl. In separate small bowl, mix brown sugar and about 2 tbsp of the reserved pineapple juice. Pour brown sugar dressing over fruit and toss to coat. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Serve immediately.
