Ensalada de Fruta Con Nuez (Mexican Fruit Salad)
- 2 large macintosh apples
- 2 red delicious apples
- 2 granny smith apples
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 cups fresh pineapple diced or one 15 ounce can of pineapple chunks in syrup
- 1/2 cup craisins or raisins
- 1/2 cup pecans chopped
- 1 cup Sour cream
- 1/2 cup natural cane sugar
I truly do enjoy a good fruit salad anytime of the year. This recipe for Mexican fruit salad is really easy to prepare. Instead of using one kind of apple, I suggest trying a few different varieties. And instead of raisins, why not craisins (dried cranberries)? They add a sweet and tart element to this already delicious salad.
This recipe is prepared during the holidays in Mexico. It's made with sour cream, so no need to cook any special sauce for today's version. Fresh fruit, easy prep and your dish of ensalada de fruta con nuez, Mexican fruit salad with nuts, will be the talk of the party!
During Christmas, I like to add red maraschino cherries with the syrup to give the salad a pink color. It looks festive! Another great addition and flavor to add are diced canned peaches. Mix it up!
