Neighborly Fruit Salad
2 C. mandarin orange slices, drained
1-1/2 C. crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 large tart apple, chopped
1 C. peaches, chopped
1 C. pears, chopped
1-1/2 C. diced celery
1-1/2 C. slivered blanched almonds
Mix fruit, celery and almonds. Sprinkle dried fruit as garnish. Serve cold. Adjust proportions as desired.
The almonds and celery provide a pleasant crunch with the sweet fruit. Make sure the fruit is ripe and soft, otherwise use canned fruit to make sure the crunch isn't from the fruit.
