2 or so pears, doesn’t really matter what kind
2 or so apples, fuji are super, but this is up to you
2 or so oranges
juice of a lemon and/or lime
raw agave syrup (optional)
chopped walnuts (optional)
Wash the fruit and chop. (Linda’s Note: Pulse chop very quickly using your food processor for the ingredients if you don’t want to chop by hand.) No need to peel the pears or apples (please peel the bananas.) You can add any fruit to this that you want – add some kiwi. Chop up different kinds of apples and pears for different sweetnesses/textures. You can make the salad as big or as small as you’d like. Chop the bananas and put in the bowl. Squeeze some lemon, not only for the flavor but to preserve the fruit. Squeeze a teaspoon or two of agave over top if you’d like but this isn’t necessary. The fruit is sweet enough. Add a couple tablespoons of shredded coconut and a few tablespoons of chopped walnuts. Mix with a spoon and let sit. This is a wonderful salad to eat any time during the day. (Linda’s Note: For those worried about food combining, don’t add the walnuts or the coconut and add an avocado if you’d like. Feel free to add a bit of cucumber or zucchini when in season for a lovely addition. This lasts up to 1-2 days in the fridge but it usually doesn’t last that long because it’s so tasty. Best to eat fruit as fresh as you can and not let it oxidize for too long.) Enjoy! This serves about 2-4 or so depending on how hungry you are.
