Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes

This fruit salad is a dessert that is very popular and traditional at Christmas time in Uruguay. We normally have it all throughout the summer as it is very refreshing and also makes a few fruits go a long way.

Ensalada de Fruta



  1. Place canned fruit in a large bowl along with it's juice, making sure you cut the peaches into small pieces.
  2. Wash remaining fruit thoroughly.
  3. Place cherries and grapes (minus stalks and any leaves) in the bowl.
  4. Cut up remaining fruit into small pieces, place in the bowl, and chill.
  5. Prior to serving, mix lightly and cover with chilled Fanta.
  6. Serve with a slotted spoon for a lovely summer dessert, especially during the holidays when we need a stomach cool down after a heavy meal.
