Save money buying fresh fruit by choosing the appropriate
sized fruit. Fruit is sold by the pound. Buy large pieces of fruit for
making pies, and more thrift friendly smaller sizes for snacking.
Here are a couple frugal fruit salad recipes.
Fruity Waldorf Salad
3/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
1 Tbsp orange juice
1 stalk celery, diced
1 small pear, diced
1 small eating apple, diced
1/8 cup chopped pecans
Mix together the mayo and orange juice. Set aside.
Cut up the celery, pear, and apple. Do the apple last, so it doesn't have
time to turn brown.
Pour the mayo mixture over the fruit, and toss. Serve over lettuce.
1 cup seedless grapes
cooking apples (tart), diced
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup canned Mandarin oranges
1 cup small marshmallows
1/4 cup chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup whipping cream
Mix apples and lemon juice.
Mix in grapes, oranges, marshmallows and nuts.
Add the sugar to the whipping
cream.. Fold mixture into the fruit salad. Chill.
