Fruit Salad, Arizona Style

This is a delicious side fruit salad with a sweet and tangy dressing. It is perfect for lunch with crusty rolls or as a dinner side dish.

The recipe comes from an amazing cookbook called The Complete Best of Bridge Cookbooks Volume Two.

If you know the Best of Bridge series of cookbooks, you know you can count on their recipes to be absolutely fabulous each and every time.

A Super Healthy Fruit Salad Recipe

This is a VERY healthy fruit and vegetable salad recipe. Each and every ingredient in it brings a wonderful array of nutrients and health benefits to your meal. It is also a good diabetes recipe.

The authors suggest that it is especially good with Mexican food (which I am sure it is), but I think it’s also much more versatile than that.

Give it a try.
