This salad deserves its name of the Perfect Summer Salad because it is pretty much practically perfect in every way!
A few weeks ago my friend Sherra was describing this amazing salad she had just had at Paradise Bakery. Since Sherra typically doesn’t eat anything green I figured it must be a really good salad if she liked it!
After she described it I had to google it and find a recipe for it. She was right – it is great. It’s pretty and delicious!
It is a perfect summer salad because it incorporates all kinds of yummy fruit – some canned and some fresh. Not only is it yummy, it is so pretty with all the different colored fruits!
You could easily adapt it to whatever was in season and in the off-season just use canned fruit. Just customize it according to whatever fruit you have on hand
The possibilities are endless. The addition of some slivered almonds gives it some nice crunch!
In addition to all the delicious fruit and pretty colors it’s easy! Easy is the name of the game, especially in the summer when you’d rather play than cook. I used readymade Kraft Poppyseed Dressing to make it even easier.
- 1 lb. romaine lettuce
- ½ cup pineapple tidbits
- ½ cup sliced strawberries
- ½ cup blueberries
- 1 can mandarin oranges
- ½ cup toasted pecans
- poppyseed dressing
- Slice fruit and combined with lettuce and dressing. Enjoy!
