Fresh Fruit Salad with a bonus

At first glance this looks like a lovely fresh fruit cup. It is up to the point that they added the canned tuna. Yummy slices and wedges of fresh fruit with a refreshing yogurt fruit dressing. Why did they ruin it with tuna? The fact that it is from the Starkist Sensational Tuna book is a clue. Another example of trying too hard to find a use for your product.

Tuna & Fresh Fruit Salad

Lettuce leaves (optional)

1 can (12-1/2 ounces) StarKist Tuna, drained and broken into chunks

4 cups slices or wedges fresh fruit

1/4 cup slivered almonds (optional)

Fruit Dressing

1 container (8 ounces) lemon, mandarin orange or vanilla low-fat yogurt

2 tablespoons orange juice

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Line a large platter or 4 individual plates with lettuce leaves if desired. Arrange tuna and desired fruit in a decorative design over lettuce. Sprinkle almonds over salad if desired.

For Fruit Dressing, in a small bowl stir together yogurt, orange juice and cinnamon until well blended. Serve dressing with salad. Makes 4 servings.

This post is too funny. Last year when I celebrated the anniversary of Star-Kist, on my blog, I posted a similar recipe (think of some way to use tuna, anyway!) from another Star-Kist recipe book. I think the other recipe was a wee bit easier to digest.

I'm going to "borrow" this link to include if you don't mind. Here's my link for Star-Kist antipasto.

Thanks for sharing Rochelle...
