Green Chili Fruit Salad ~ Vegan MOFO Day #4

tomatoweb

Today’s theme for Vegan MOFO is to tell about a weird food combination that you love.  That took me a little while to come up with, as I don’t really crave anything really strange, so I decided that this will fit for today ~ green chili fruit salad.

Deconstructing the dish, it’s actually not all that strange, as it’s a variation of Waldorf Salad, but some people might consider chilis and fruit to be a unique combination.

It’s a fairly simple one to put together, and you can use any of your favorite fruits or whatever you have on hand.

Mix together:

  • 1-2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 apple, chopped (I used a green apple today)
  • 1 pear, chopped
  • 1 kiwi, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grapes, halved (I used red grapes for added sweetness & color)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon diced green chilis
  • 2 or more tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt & pepper to taste

Toss together and serve.

I have made this with dried cranberries or cherries as well, and it might also be interesting with some orange added. And definitely some avocado! (I didn’t have any today).

See you back tomorrow with the best sandwich ever!
