East Meets West in a Salad

[Tyler] For a pot luck last week, I was trying to think of something quick, fun, and light to bring. I came up with this East Meets West Fruit Salad recipe, which fit the bill perfectly. It tastes decadent, but has very little fat and no processed sugars.


2 Cups Diced Mango (about two large)
2 Cups Diced Peaches (about four large)
2 Cups Sliced Strawberries
1/2 Cup Sliced Celery (about two stalks)
1/3 Cup Half & Half
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cardamom
1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar

Combine the Fruit and Celery in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the Half & Half, Cardamom, and Agave Nectar. Toss the Fruit Combination with the Half & Half Mixture. Allow to sit for at least a half hour before serving (it's even better the next day).
