Hot Fruit Salad
1 (8 oz.) can mandarin oranges
1 (8 oz.) can pineapple chunks
1 (8 oz.) can peaches
2 ripe bananas, peeled and quartered
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1. Drain the oranges, pineapple, and peaches, reserving 1/2 cup of syrup. Set aside.
2. Stove-top Method: In a 3-quart saucepan, add the oranges, pineapple, peaches, and bananas. Sprinkle the brown sugar, cinnamon, and the reserved syrup on top and heat it for 5 to 7 minutes. Serve hot.
Microwave Method: Arrange the oranges, pineapple, peaches, and bananas on a microwave-safe dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar, cinnamon, and the reserved syrup on top and heat in a microwave oven on high (100%) for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
I like to serve this salad to complement the hot spiciness of the vegetable curries and rice dishes. Also, when fresh fruit is out of season, this is the perfect salad. You can use canned fruits packed in light syrup.
