Christmas fruit salad...

I would love to share my favourite festive fruit salad recipe. It's a very pleasant marriage of textures, colours and tastes. It can be served as a main low fat meal (more for raw vegan enthusiast) or simply as a festive starter. I like to serve it in a nice glass decorated with parsley for nice dinner starter.

For this recipe you will need a secret ingredient that gives this special texture contrast: a bag of mung bean sprouts. I Absolutely love this product, that's very easy to serve, has a great taste and is a real nutritional bomb... I love to add it to my sweet or savoury salads, it's a real healthy fast food! You open a box and your meal is half-ready!

Crunchy and fresh mung bean sprouts pared with soft and delicate fruit create a very nice mouth feeling and a real texture surprise. I choose mangoes and pears for this salad but you can try some other fruit like papaya and bananas, oranges and mangoes, apples and bananas, etc...

Tips: Sweetness and fragrance of fruit is a real key to achieve an excellence in this recipe!


  • 2 large mangoes
  • 2 large pears (or 4 small)
  • 1 handful of dried cranberries
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 box of mung bean sprouts
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/2 orange

Cut mangoes and pears into pieces. Cut celery stalks into small pieces. Squeeze the juice from a half of an orange. Put all ingredients into a salad bowl and mix well. Less marinate for a few minutes (you can make it in advance) and serve.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe!
