Author Notes

For a breakfast salad especially with all the holiday temptations I decided to concoct something simple, healthy and satisfying. And I wanted to limit this to 5 ingredients.

  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 largish Asian ripe pear
  • juice from 1/2 fresh lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
  • 2 ounces toasted Pepitas (or you can substitute roasted pistachios)
In This Recipe
  1. Rinse your fruit. Peel the banana and slice into quarter inch rounds. Peel the pear and dice into 3/4 inch pieces. Squeeze the lime over the cut fruit and let that sit for about 10 minutes. Add the cinnamon after 5 minutes and toss gently.
  2. Toast raw Pepitas in the oven for a few minutes. Top the salad with the toasted Pepitas. That is the core salad. If you want to garnish with fresh herbs and finish with a sprinkle of flax seed, let your diet inspire your variations.

Yum! Mind if I put this over some yogurt (making it 6 ingredients)?

Thanks, drbabs. This is working for weight loss for me, but you can enjoy the yogurt addition!
