Exotic Fruit Salad (II)

Exotic Fruit Salad (II)

Prepare the dressing first (recipe received from Navidad, whom I thank in this way too!). In the bowl prepared for the salad pour the hazelnut oil (or grape seed, ...), lemon juice and honey. Mix these ingredients well until they become an emulsion, then add the pineapple syrup and orange liqueur. I used homemade orange liqueur:


Oranges, grapefruit and mandarins are washed well with warm water and baking soda, then rinsed with cold water and wiped with a paper towel.

In the bowl in which the salad dressing is placed, put the fruits, as follows:

Peel an orange, grate it and cut it into two or three pieces.

Grapefruit is peeled and peeled, which are bitter, sliced ​​and also cut into two or three pieces.

The mandarins are peeled, sliced ​​and halved.

Peel a squash, grate it and slice it.

Peel a squash, grate it and cut it in half.

The pineapple, if it is sliced ​​in the can, will be cut into smaller pieces.

Add the raisins, then mix the fruit lightly in the bowl, from bottom to top, to impregnate them with the dressing designed to prevent rapid oxidation of the fruit and highlight the exotic flavors.

Before serving, refrigerate the fruit salad for 15 minutes.

It can also be served immediately, in pre-cooled cups in the refrigerator, if there is a risk of illness).

At the end of the recipe for the exotic fruit salad recipe and the dressing recipe that Navidad was kind enough to recommend to me and that I capitalized on here:

"We always make a basic" dressing "for fruit salads, from 1 lbt of oil (necessarily neutral, we use most often from grape seeds), 1 lgt. Of lemon juice and 1 lgt. Of honey, which we rub until emulsification on the bottom of the bowl in which the salad will be prepared, then add the "liquids" (syrup, alcohol, fruit juice, etc.) and mix, and then put the cut fruit as desired and mix everything lightly, from bottom to bottom. "This dressing prevents the rapid oxidation of fruit, and the oil incredibly intensifies all flavors (which are mostly" volatile oils ") and at the same time promotes the resorption of fat-soluble vitamins."

After ripening, the only portion you can eat is the yellow one, the black seeds still remain toxic regardless of the condition of the fruit.

  • Rambutanit is also a fruit native to Malaysia. It looks completely and utterly bizarre and few people know about it as edible.

Rambutan is a very nutritious fruit and can help you lose weight, regulate intestinal transit, and prevent infections.

  • Jabuticaba is a tree from South America. This is unique for the simple reason that its fruits grow directly on the trunk. They are very similar to grapes and are also used for making wine. The pulp of jabuticaba fruit can be eaten raw, but it is so perishable that when exported it is packed in boxes. It is a fruit that has a lot of healing properties: relieves asthma, stops diarrhea. It has a sweet taste and must be consumed immediately after being harvested, otherwise it oxidizes very quickly.

  • Aguaje it is a fruit that is enjoying more and more popularity all over the world. The aguaje fruit is also distinguished by a lot of properties, has a high content of vitamins, and its pulp is often used to treat burns. It is said that it helps to obtain an enviable posterior. Aguaje contains phytoestrogens, which help to highlight feminine features and help your hair, nails and skin to be the way you want them.

  • Miracle fruits are berries that have a special, unique property: when consumed, they change the taste of sour foods into sweet for thirty minutes, an hour. Miraculin is the substance that moisturizes the sweet receptors on the tongue and is often used as a substitute for sugar. It is a fruit native to West Africa and usually grows in arid areas.

  • Mangosteen is an exotic fruit found in Indonesia. It does not contain cholesterol or other fats at all and is rich in vitamin C. The edible part of mangosteen is the pulp, which is triangular in shape.

    Healthy diets. 8 fruits with a little sugar to include in the menu

    When you struggle with kilograms, the first thing you want to cut off the list is sugar, and with it you have decided that fruits no longer have a place on the menu because they have a high content of fructose or sugars. But do not give up a varied diet, because there are fruits with little sugar that can make room in your menus.

    Among the recommendations you can receive from a nutritionist when you have decided to follow a weight loss diet is to reduce carbohydrate intake. Carbohydrates stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin, which will eventually lead to excess weight or, worse, to type 2 diabetes.

    But by controlling your carbohydrate or sugar intake, you don't have to cut any fruit off the list. While some fruits do contain more fructose, there are some that do not pose a danger to the figure or to control health problems. We give you a list of fruits that have a low sugar content (less than 9g sugar per 100g fruit) and we also tell you how to include them most easily in the menu.

    1. Raspberries
    When it is very ripe and juicy, you can put it in any fresh fruit juice. You can use it in salad dressings or you can consume it with ricotta or goat cheese for a snack.

    2. Blueberries
    Nothing compares to a handful of ripe blueberries, rich in antioxidants, sprinkled over yogurt with morning cereal or eaten plain for dessert. And the best news is that you can keep all their vitamins by freezing. So you can put such goodies for the cold season in the summer.

    3. Nectarines
    They are not as sweet as the peaches they look a lot like. Because they have a firm and crunchy skin, they are suitable in salads (both with vegetables and fruits). You can also take them in a package for a healthy snack with a few almonds or you can eat them sliced ​​with a little peanut butter.

    4. Lemon and lime
    The easiest way to enjoy them is to put them in a lemonade. In addition, you can use them to highlight the taste of other healthy dishes: guacamole, vegetable sauce, vinaigrettes or even steaks.
