I don’t know WHAT came over me this morning but I wanted something tasty, healthy fresh and satisfying to start my Magnificent Monday and this popped into my head. To me nothing is more “fresh” tasting then oranges and strawberries and the cilantro just topped it off nicely. It was a very satisfying fruit salad with a twist!

I think I’ve said this before but it warrants a repeat. Strawberry Orange SaladFor me preparing food is ultimately more satisfying then just eating it. I know some of you may think that’s crazy but listen, you can open the pantry and grab a pre-made processed food snack or you can spend 5 minutes in the kitchen peeling an orange, slicing some strawberries and sitting down to a tasty, ultimately more satisfying and nutritious bowl of fruit. You decide and I hope this idea motivates you to pick the latter!

  • 1 Navel Orange pealed, sectioned and sections cut in half
  • About 1 cup of whole fresh strawberries halved
  • Sprinkle of Dried Cilantro

Put all ingredients in a bowl, mix and enjoy!

    Yum! I love a fresh fruit salad! I often bring a fresh fruit salad to pot lucks so I know that there will be a “dessert” there that I can eat. I usually just throw in whatever fruit looks good at the market that day. But, to sweeten it up a bit, I usually add (sorry, no measurements, I just wing it) a dollop of honey, a splash of lime juice, a splash of lemon juice (for flavor and to help the fruit from turning brown) and the zest of an orange. The honey adds a wonderful, natural sweetness and all the citrus adds just another dimension to the fruity flavors. And, if I have leftovers to bring home, I might even throw a bit of whipped cream on top for myself. I promise, with this on the table, I don’t even look at the other desserts at a pot luck (well, at least not twice! ;) )!

    I stumbled across your website today and this looks great. I make something similar, chopping the oranges and strawberries very small, adding 1 can of crushed pineapple (with juice), 2-3 chopped kiwifruit, a minced scallion, and 2 TBSP of lime juice. We use this as a salsa with grilled chicken and fish. It is also a good dip for the 100 cal packs of honey maid graham crackers.

    Just found your blog… I love mixing herbs with fruit. I usually use something in the mint family, like mint or basil, but cilantro seems like an interesting idea! Can’t wait to try it!
