12 Days of Salad: Day 5

You didn't think I'd forget to post today's salad, did you?

If you have a salad recipe you'd like to share, feel free to post in comments.  The holidays don't have to be ALL about cookies, right?!  So, here is a fruit-based salad that is sweet enough to be used as a dessert too - a double-duty recipe in time for the holidays, and a way to get more fruit into the diet..


Day 5:

Winter Frozen Fruit Salad

1 can crushed pineapple, partially drained
2 large bananas, mashed
2 TB chopped cherries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar (or sugar substititue)
2 cups sour cream (or appropriate substitute)

Mix all ingredients except pecans.  Let stand for a few minutes, then stir in the nuts.  Pour into a 9 x 13 Pryex dish and freeze. 

Remove from freezer 20-30 minutes before serving, to make it easier to cut.


  1. Does it come in LoCarb?
    Well,,,,,,,probably not, eh?
    Will you enjoy my portion for me?

  2. Sadly, Anne, fruit salads don't fall into the low carb category. No worries, this is the last fruit-based one of the series. You may want to try a sugar-free jello (lime) with pecans and cottage cheese ... all mixed together! If you want the recipe, I'll be happy to share it. Sounds really odd, but it is surprisingly tasty.
