A popular smoothie combination can be enjoyed just as great in a bowl as Strawberry Banana Salad with a sweet Honey Citrus Cinnamon Dressing.
What a great salad to enjoy as a dessert after dinner.
Where does this recipe come from?
I have been asked a few times now, where do I get my salad recipes. Seriously, just in my head. I don’t know. Whatever vegetables or fruits look good to me in the grocery store I grab. I then start playing with different flavors.Sometimes it doesn’t work, but don’t feel bad for the fruits and vegetables that don’t work, I don’t throw them away. I just blend all the ingredients up in my magic bullet and drink it. “If you can’t eat them, drink them”. There are some ingredients that work so well together that I think to myself, ‘why haven’t I put these two together before’.
This fruit salad recipe took me a while to come up with, almost a week. Sometimes the simplest things are not so easy to think of right away. I asked around if anyone knew a good fruit salad dressing, but no one seemed to know, so I started testing. This sweet fruit salad dressing works well with these ingredients. Even though, you can use any fruits in this salad, try to not go for the citrus ones since citrus fruit tend to have more juice. This healthy salad contains fiber packed strawberries, vitamin-C-full raspberries, potassium enriched apples and a boost of vitamin-B6 in the bananas.
