Autumn Fruit Salad with freshly harvested Red and Green Apples plus pears, banana and grapes.
The perfect accompaniment for a meat supper dish that needs a fresh, light touch or serve it with a sandwich – or just on its own. A great after-school snack with a bit a cheddar cheese. (my mouth is watering already).
And I’m thinking breakfast with a tablespoon or two of raw oats or granola - oh, yes, and some Chia seeds.
This recipe is simple and quick to make. Older children could help with the preparation. Younger children could help prepare the dressing.
2 Red Delicious apples
1 Granny Smith apple
2 Bartlett pears
1 sliced banana
1/2 pound red grapes
1/2 cup almond slivers – toasted
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon apple cider or juice
1. Wash and core apples and pears, peeling if desired.
2. Cut into one inch chunks.
3. Slice bananas 1/2" thick.
4. Wash grapes and cut in half.
5. Combine fruits and almonds in salad bowl.
6. Mix yogurt with spices and cider. Pour over fruit salad and stir to coat fruits evenly.
Best Pennywise Tip: Use organic fruit if possible so you feel okay about leaving the peel on – the colors look lovely and really boost everyone’s appetite.
Want to use it for a school lunch or take it to work? Dip the cut apples, pears, and bananas in a lemon juice rinse to prevent browning.
Bananas get too mushy? Eliminate and try a kiwi cut in chunks. Send the dressing on the side. Keep chilled.
Use any apples you like - the ones recommended here are usually easy to find, maybe a little less expensive but also they are crisp - feel free to swap in your favorites.
