Apple, Pineapple, Strawberry Fruit Salad with a Chat Kick

I usually prefer to eat the fruits raw and whole, unlike juices, fruit custards, fruit salads etc. But when Pia hosted this event and encouraged me to participate I wanted to give it a try with  these tangy fruit combination. I have added some spices to subtle the tanginess and nuts to add some crunchiness, result is Yummy fruit salad with a Kick.

Usually hubby does not make it a point to eat fruits everyday, one day when I return from work early,  I quickly made this fruit salad and kept it aside to get all the flavors sink in, which is the savior for my fasting day. I didn't know hubby noticed that since he came home, and waited long enough for me to serve, as I didn't offer him any (knowing his reluctance to fruits), he self served complimenting how nice it looked and inviting it was, he digged in and finished most of it. Though I was looking forward for the joy of eating fruit salad all day (as I was fasting), but this new recipe invention which made the hubby to finish all the fruits, gave me much pleasure. :-)

Here is the recipe for you, Enjoy!

Pine Apple Rounds - 1 can
Red Delicious Apple - 1 medium
Strawberry - 8 to 10 ( whole)
Walnuts - 1/3 cup
Pavbaji Masala - 1 Tbsp
Honey - 1 Tbsp

How to Make it:
1. Cut the 6 Pine apple rounds into semi circle. Save 4 to 5 apple long wedges. and Cut the strawberry into thin slices.
2. Cut the remaining pine apple and apple into cube size chunks.
3. Mix the Pavbaji Masala into fruit mixture and mix well gently ( with out mushing up the fruit)
4. Take a wide bowl and arrange three to four semi circle pine apple slices.
5. Place the fruit mixture on top.
6. And top with roughly chopped walnuts.
7. Garnish the remaining pine apple slices, apple wedges and strawberry slices.
8. Pour the honey on top and let it sit for 1/2 hour to sink in all the flavors.
(if you like chilled, you can keep it in the refrigerator), I like it at room temperature.
9. Now, sit back and relax by enjoying your whole-sum yummylicious Fruit Salad.

As I couldn't find the good fresh pineapple in this season, I have used the can. Otherwise feel free to use the Fresh Pineapple.
I don't have chat masala, so I have used Pavbaji Masala. It can be substituted with Chat Masala.

I am sending this to Cook Healthy Innovative Salads Event by Pia.

Take care until next time
