~four seasons fruit salad ~

A lovely, delicious salad that you can make any time of the year. This is a great “use what you have” sort of a recipe. Feel free to substitute a can of drained fruit cocktail, canned peaches, or canned pineapple if you don’t have a bunch of fresh fruit on hand…substitute kiwi or another berry for the strawberries…you get the idea.

In a large bowl, combine:

2 large oranges, peeled, segmented and cut into bite size pieces

2 bananas, peeled and sliced

1 large apple, cubed

1/2 cup sweetened coconut

1 cup sliced strawberries

                                                                                1 cup pineapple chunks

1 and 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

1/2 coarse chopped pecans

1 cup light mayonnaise

1/3 cup honey

zest of 1/2 orange

2 Tablespoons poppy seeds

1-2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

pinch of salt

Place all ingredients in a canning jar and shake to mix. Pour over fruit salad. Fold in gently. Cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to eat. Transfer to a pretty bowl and garnish with mint leaves, if desired.

Enjoy!
