Tipsy fruit

    20 min

    Only kidding! While this Mexican-inspired fruity side dish won't get you tipsy, it is so delicious you might not stop eating it! Watermelon, pineapple and strawberries are tossed with tequila, lime juice and agave nectar or honey. It will keep chilled for a couple of days. Mango or jicama can be added if you prefer. Don't feel you have to stick to the original recipe.

    We really enjoyed this. I added half a sliced banana, some mango and a handful of almond slices. I made and dressed the salad mid morning to use mid afternoon, giving all the fruits to meld with the dressing. When I opened the container the smell of tequila was pretty strong, but it really isn't strong as you eat it. I used Sauza (r) Blue tequila and it was just perfect. This will be featured at many summer functions. Thanks, becchoate!  -  20 Apr 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I happen to love margaritas and watermelon, so I decided to give this a try. It was delicious. Since I like my margarita with salt, I sprinkled a little salty Cotija cheese to taste just before serving.  -  05 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
