This is a twist on the traditional fruit salad. The vinaigrette dressing adds a distinctive taste that puts the fruit salad "over the top" with flavor. I have used the dressing on spinach salads also; it works quite well.

How To Make

  • 1
    You may use any fruit that you enjoy, although bananas do not work well in this salad. Combine your fruit in large bowl. Set aside.
  • 2
    Combine mangos, orange juice, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt, pepper in a blender. Puree until smooth. While blender is running, slowly drizzle in olive oil.
  • 3
    Slowly drizzle vinaigrette, in small increments over fruit salad, tasting as you go, until you get the fruit coated and the taste you want. Be careful while adding the vinaigrette, it has a strong flavor and it is easy to get too much thus over powering your salad. You can keep remaining vinaigrette in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  • 4
    If you are serving a large crowd, it is a nice presentation to slice a watermelon in half (using the inside for your salad). Hollow out watermelon, cut out decorative border around edges and place completed fruit salad inside. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
