Pecan Fruit Salad

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


6 servings

This is a very colorful dish for the holidays and a change from jello salads. Peanuts also works well in this salad instead of pecans.—Stephen Allen, Leland, North Carolina


  • 2 large tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks, undrained
  • 1 cup canned sliced beets, drained
  • 1 medium firm banana, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 6 lettuce leaves
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  1. In a large bowl, combine the apples, oranges, pineapple, beets, banana and lemon juice. Let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, for dressing, combine the mayonnaise, milk and brown sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Drain fruit mixture; spoon onto lettuce-lined plates. Sprinkle with sugar and pecans. Serve with dressing.
