Mexican Fruit Salad (1 of 1)

Refreshing, simple, delicious and pretty to look at! What more could you ask for from a fruit salad? Well, this fruit salad is not your typical American fruit salad. Mexican fruit salads add savory elements of chili and salt, and perhaps some cilantro and onion as well. This fruit salad has an interesting flavor combination of jalapeno, red onion and cilantro that are unexpected, in a good way, when mixed with the sweetness of the fruit!  Also, the blood oranges were purchased on accident, but make the salad that much more appealing to look at, and everyone wants their food to look pretty right:). Serve alongside your favorite Mexican dishes.

Yield 5-6 Servings
2 cups of cubed pineapple, slice the cubes into 1/2-inch wide slices (00842, 3CT)
2 blood oranges, segmented (01990, 20#)
1 granny smith apple, thinly sliced (00018, 12CT)
1/4 cup of thinly sliced red onion (00683, 5#)
1/2 jalapeño, seeded, thinly sliced or finely diced (optional) (00814, 10#)
2 tablespoons lime juice (00588, 12CT)
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro (optional) (05329, 1#)
Pinch of Kosher salt (CQS030, 3#, Diamond Crystal)

Combine the fruit, jalapeno, and onions in a bowl. Squeeze lime juice over everything. Sprinkle with salt. Toss in cilantro to combine.
