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.
