    twissis's Note:

    Occ things you do on pure impulse turn out to be neat surprises. I got 1 of those surprises last nite when DH and I decided to have a simple fruit salad for dinner. I made it, looked at it and then thought ... BORING! I wanted to do something to make it an esp tasty and out of the ordinary attention-getter. I was sorting thru my cupboard, ran across some red hot cinnamon candies I had just brought back from the US and I decided my search was over. Before you scoff and move on to the next recipe, I gotta tell you this is really good, has a great holiday look and would also be good for a unique pot-luck dish. My bet is it will have your family begging for this fruit salad or even thinking of it as a dessert. Time does not include refrigeration time.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    1 cup s ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups seedless grapes (I used a mix of red & green)
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 2 fresh oranges (peeled & sectioned, I had clementines on hand & used 3 of them)
    • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple (well-drained)
    • 1 kiwi (peeled & diced)
    • 1/2 cup yoghurt (I used caramel flavor, but use vanilla just as often)
    • 1/4 cup red-hot candies
    • 2 bananas (sliced in 1/2 in slices)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine yoghurt, red-hot candies & raisins. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs, stirring at 30 min intervals.
    2. 2
      Prepare & combine the remaining fruit ingredients in a bowl when nearly ready to serve. Add the bananas last.
    3. 3
      Add the yoghurt, red-hots & raisin mix to the fruit. Stir well & refrigerate till ready to serve, but is best if served soon after mixing.
    4. 4
      NOTES: A variety of fresh seasonal or canned fruits can be used w/equal success. The above was just what I had on hand. - Refrigeration time is important as it softens the candy & releases the cinnamon flavor & color. They will fully dissolve w/longer refrigeration time. Add chopped pecans or walnuts as an option & enjoy!
    5. 5
      CAUTION: You will want to eat this sauce w/a spoon & forget about the fruit! Pls try to resist this temptation. Your family will love you for it.

      Delicious! I used vanilla yogurt but used the same fruit as listed. I admit I have a bit leary about using the red hots--but this doesn't taste hot just delicious! Next time I will add an apple to the fruit. I am having the leftovers for breakfast! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
