A fantastic salad I got from a Portuguese restaurant in Amsterdam. I've been eating it ever since. Garnish with grapes. Leftovers should keep for a day or so, but the fruits will make the lettuce wilt fast.

  • Layer lettuce, avocados, tomatoes, strawberries, clementines, onion, mango, apple, nectarine, and cucumber in a large bowl or on individual serving plates. Drizzle vinaigrette on top.

  • Remove eggs from hot water; cool under cold running water. Peel and chop. Scatter eggs over the salad.

Cook's Notes:

Omit whatever you choose. Another great option is to add thinly sliced steak or salmon. Beef or tuna carpaccio works well.

Use a strawberry or apple cider vinaigrette if preferred.

This recipe is similar to the parrot head salad also delicious and on this site using a few more fruits and vegetables and omitting bacon. For the parrothead salad I like to make a poppyseed dressing replacing some of the vinegar with citrus juice. That would be wonderful here as well. You may question the mix of sweet and tangy at first but it actually works! Read More

The salad was very good and I enjoyed all of the fruit in it. I left out the eggs because I don't like boiled eggs & used mandarin oranges instead of clementines. I did have the salad for lunch because in all honestly eating it for breakfast seemed odd to me. It was a tasty lunch though! Read More
