Fruit Salad Crunch

Updated on December 29, 2012

It's good to eat, and good for you also.

Don't get enough vegetables or fiber in your diet? Then this is the summer recipe for you! It's delicious and nutritious!

Ritz Salad

I am a person who normally doesn't like to eat carrots, but one day at the River of Life in Honolulu, a salad of shredded carrots, sugar and raisins.

Not to be confused with the 1893 invention of the Waldorf Astoria or the Ritz salad made famous in the British comedy 'Fawlty Towers', this is a revamped, tastier and crunchier salad - transformed to the Faultless Salad.

Easy to make, inexpensive ingredients and keeps well unrefrigerated on hot summer picnics, you won't find anything 'fawlty' in this family holiday treat.

FYI: Don't spend extra money on so called 'baby' carrots because they are full sized carrots that have been broken off and then buzz grind to look like as if they were tender shoots. Peeled carrots taste better.

Ingredients - Makes 4 Servings

  • 1 large red apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries,, (or raisins)
  • 2 cups Grated carrots
  • 1/2 single serving container vanilla yogurt, (optional)
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 medium fresh lemon


  1. Peel carrots and grate and pour honey over carrots in a large bowl. Add dried cranberries
  2. Peel and chop apple and mix the juice of one fresh lemon so the apples won't discolor. Add to the grated carrots along with the chopped walnuts.
  3. Optional: yogurt of any flavor and any other additional fruits. Can use slice almonds instead of chopped walnuts.

    It tastes best when chilled for awhile. I made some today and added pictures. It's hot, hot, hot, hot! and this is a dish that is best served cold - like revenge!

    I made something very similar to this for breakfast this morning, but I really like your inclusion of walnuts and carrots. And I never thought about taking this for a picnic, but I'll bet it would be a huge hit at my family reunion!
