Parrothead Salad

Rated as 4.78 out of 5 Stars

"I first had this colorful salad at a tailgate before a Jimmy Buffett concert, thus the name! It's perfect for spring and summer get-togethers when the ingredients are fresh and ripe. My supper club likes it even better with Buffett playing in the background! Serve with poppy seed dressing."

  1. Toss the lettuce, strawberries, blueberries, mango, tomatoes, raisins, almonds, and onions together in a salad bowl. Cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle. Do not refrigerate more than 4 hours.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp and evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble and sprinkle over the salad to serve.

We really enjoyed this salad. Only things we would change are using grapes instead of raisins and we didn't care for the red onion in the recipe and would leave it out next time.

This salad was a huge hit with my family. We didn't even need to use the poppy seed dressing, as the juices from the fruit made a delicious dressing itself! I will definitely make this again!

SOOOO good! I brought this to a tennis match and there was none leftover. Dressing isn't needed as the fruit juices are more than sufficient.

Who Knew this combo of items would meld so well. It dosen't get anybetter to me.I even ate the tomatos that I usely turn my noise up at.
