Fruit Salad

This is one of my favorite homemade salads of all time. It’s so refreshing and flavorful– a perfect dish for a summer potluck or mini gathering with friends and family.

 

Yield: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 apples, diced ~2cm cube (I prefer ambrosia or pink lady because they taste better in my opinion as they have that nice crunchy feel when you bite into it)
  • 2 avocado, diced ~2cm cube
  • 8 strawberries, cut in half or slices
  • ¼ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped, and toasted

Sauce

  • ¾ cup mayonnaise (I use Hellmann’s)
  • ½ lemon, juice it all out!
  • 1½ tbsp granulated sugar
  • sprinkle of salt

 

Directions:

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a big salad bowl. Mix until well incorporated. (Adjust ingredients if you want it sweeter, tangier, or have more flavor, etc.)
  2. Toss diced apples into salad bowl and cover them with the mayo dressing (this is to prevent the apples from browning too fast)
  3. Toss in avocado and mix with the apples until well combined. (Make sure you don’t crush the avocado – we don’t want mush or any green to “leak out”!)
  4. Place strawberries on top of the salad for a pretty look. Do not mix it before serving (this is to make it look presentable)
  5. Finally top it all with the toasted walnuts for a nice finishing touch.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
