Healthier Heavenly Hash (a.k.a. Ambrosia Salad)

Our mom makes this at many holiday meals.  If you are from the South (or the Midwest, as we are) this is considered a side dish.  Let’s be honest though, it’s a dessert that’s socially acceptable to eat along with your meal.  What’s not to like about that?! Whether you choose to enjoy this as a side or as a dessert, you’ll find no judgement here.  It contains fruit, so it makes sense it could be either one, right?! Right. ~Erin

Limeade Fruit Salad

I’m a huge fan of fruit salad, but so many have a ton of added ingredients that crank up the calories.  Sometimes simple is best, and the kick of lime makes this beautiful dish a refreshing sweet/tart treat fit for any meal, whether served at your table or, better yet, a picnic blanket.  ~Robin

Limeade Fruit Salad
    Ingredients:
  • ~12 oz. strawberries, chopped (this was a whole 16 oz. package weighed after I removed stems and chopped them)
  • ~10 oz. pineapple, chopped (about half a pineapple)
  • ~1 Granny Smith apple, chopped (Granny Smith is the only apple tart enough, and there’s a nice crispness that works well for varied texture here too.)
  • ~5 oz. seedless black grapes (about 25 grapes), halved
  • ~1/8 c. sugar
  • ~3 limes’ juice (about 6 T.)
  1. Wash and chop all fruit; combine.
  2. Add sugar, then add the juice of 2 limes, stir well, and taste. Then add a 3rd lime’s juice if you like it more tart.
  3. Chill at least 30 minutes for the sweet and tart flavors to mix well.
  4. Can be chilled overnight as well if you want to make it ahead.

Weight Watcher’s info.: 1 cup = 1 point; 1.5 cups = 2 points; 2 cups = 3 points (for my fellow fruit fanatics)
