Fruit Salad; Gong Xi Fa Cai

It is raining tangarines here...A gift to us during Chinese New Year are tangarines. Peel an orange and just keep the whole orange inside your mouth and enjoy the sweetness of Tangarines......in the past 5 yrs I have not eaten a sour tangarine. I used them to make yummilicious fruit salad.

Method :
Cut apple, pear, into 2" cubes. Peel oranges and separate them. Pound almonds just to break them don't break them completely.
Cut figs into half. Add in blueberries, raisins. Pour the dressing on top of the salad and toss.
Serve chilled or immediately.

Yummy....and so true, even I haven't tasted a single sour tangerine. I never used to like oranges but tangerines are a hot favorite at home. Like you said pop one whole tangerine after peeling into your mouth and enjoy the sweet juice....heavenly. The fruit salad is an exotic mix of fruits and lovely dressing...Iam definitely going to try it LG.
