Pineapple Mango Salad

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Pineapple Mango Salad is one luscious salad–and certainly a favorite. Lots of pineapple, two kinds of mangos, grapes, strawberries, kiwis, bananas and star fruit are mixed with a delicious sauce of honey, cinnamon and lime juice and then sprinkled with coconut. Pineapple Mango Salad is pretty special, not to mention it looks and tastes spectacular. Serving it out of the pineapple shell makes it look even more sensational.

We were having company for dinner last week and I wanted to make some kind of fruit salad. Mangos had been on sale recently, so I looked online to see if I could find any kind of salad using pineapples and mangos. This recipe looked so fabulous I decided to give it a try adding a few other types of fruit. We all loved it. The dressing of honey, cinnamon and lime juice, though so simple, was wonderful to the palate, and the combination of tropical fruits with berries was mouthwatering.

If you’re looking for a fantastic fruit salad recipe, then give Pineapple Mango Salad a try sometime. It is wonderful for special occasions, holidays, and company dinners, especially if you serve it in pineapple shells like I did. This salad is delectable, not to mention healthy, low calorie, gluten free and vegan.

If you’ve never purchased star fruit before, look for one that’s yellow and brown (not green) as they will be riper and sweeter. Otherwise the star fruit may be too bitter. Ours was just right.

On the left are the ingredients for the salad. On the right are the ingredients for the dressing and garnish. You can see that my star fruit is really yellow with brown edges (instead of green edges).
