Fresh Fruit Broccoli Slaw



     Hello Fruit Season !!!  So ready for the Summer Salads to begin, and today was no exception !!!  My sister, Gia, reminded me of this tried and true favorite and especially with grilled meat !!!  It worked out perfectly as we planned on having grilled chicken AND salmon today for lunch !!!  I beg the Hubs to grill a hefty amount of chicken and salmon on Sunday and then we have it on hand for salads all week, it works great for lunch as well !!!  I don't have the nutritional stats on this because you literally throw in what type of fruits you have on hand and enjoy together. I had some bananas that were getting ripe so I decided to make a dressing out of that, actually the riper the banana the sweeter the fruit.  So don't ever throw away  bananas with brown spots, those are the best! Also, you can slice them and freeze them for use later in making shakes and ice cream !!!  ;)

Ingredients for dressing~
1/4 cup Veganaise
Dash Lemon Juice
1 ripe banana
Dannon Greek Pineapple Light&Fit yogurt 5.3oz

     Blend all together in Magic Bullet and set aside.  I didn't add any sweetener to this as the banana has enough sugar already to cover that base.

Ingredients for salad~
12oz Broccoli Slaw pre made mix
grapes
diced apple
4 fresh cutie Halo Mandarin oranges, peeled and separated ( why use canned mandarin oranges when you can use fresh !?)
5-6 green onions diced
1/2 cup slivered almonds ( I think the slivered almonds spread the farthest calories wise vs whole almonds)
Fresh diced pineapple, optional

     Mix all together, add the dressing and stir.  Viola !!!  Enjoy  ;)
