Pineapple, Orange, Papaya Salad

This is a beautiful refreshing fruit dessert that is so easy to prepare. When these fruits are in season, there is nothing more satisfying. The natural sweetness of the fruit needs no extra sugar to satisfy your sweet tooth. For an extra special taste, try using mangoes in place of the papaya when they are in season.

Pineapple, Orange, Papaya Salad Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

1 medium sized pineapple cut into 1 inch pieces
4 oranges, segments cut out from membrane
1 large papaya, cut into pieces
2 TBS sliced almonds


  1. Cut fruit and mix together, and sprinkle with sliced almonds

    Serves 4

Healthy Cooking Tips: Because of the simplicity of this recipe it is important to start with fresh, ripe ingredients. It is worth taking the time to check our animation of cutting orange segments if you haven’t done this before. Cut correctly, you will eliminate the bitterness and rough texture of the membrane without the segments falling apart.
