ABOUT THE RECIPE:
“Yum!” is all I can say about this truly satisfying Almost Ambrosia fruit salad. Reminiscent of a classic ambrosia, but sans the overly sweet marshmallows, this lively dish is great to serve for a morning treat but also works well as a first course for an elegant dinner party.
Makes 2 to 4 servings
2 clementines, divided into sections
1 1/2 cups peeled, cored and cubed pineapple
1 very large or 2 small bananas, sliced
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded dried coconut
4 large medjool dates, pitted and chopped
Squeeze the juice from 3 or 4 of the clementine sections into the bottom of a medium-sized bowl. Add the remaining clementine sections, pineapple, banana, coconut and dates to the bowl. Gently toss to combine. Divide into 2 to 4 pretty dishes, and serve.
