Citrus Fruit Salad
I love most fruit salads and normally make the one I grew up with which had oranges, nuts, marshmallows and cherries. A few days ago I decided to make my usual and found that I had no oranges but I did have a can of 'Citrus Salad' mix. This is a combination of a little orange but mostly grapefruit - red and white. When I spotted this I decided to give it a try. So here is what I used.
1 can of DelMonte Citrus Salad (15 oz.), drained
Shaved, unsweetened coconut
Pecans (or nuts of your choice)
1 bag mini marshmallows
1 can Pineapple chunks (15 oz.), drained
Mix it all together and let sit in the refrigerator covered for about 1 hr. Stir and serve. The grapefruit in this mixture gives the whole dish a deliciously, 'clean' taste that I simply love. I've made this 3 times now and can't get enough of it. I eat it at night as my dessert and whenever I find myself wanting something sweet. You got to try this one!
