Thousand Island Fruit Salad

Thousand Island Fruit Salad – reduced fat

People use dressings, sauces and condiments on just about everything they eat. So that’s an area we can work on in lowering the fat and caloric content of what we put on our food. Nobody would suspect that there is a fat-reduced creamy sauce enveloping the fresh fruits and rind matchsticks in this delectable salad!

Makes 7-8 cups


1/4 c. dairy-free sour cream – I used Tofutti brand


1/2 c. KRAFT Thousand Island Dressing, fat-free

1 t. smoked paprika

1/2 t. ground coriander

1/4 t. ground allspice

1/2 t. salt

fresh grind black pepper to taste

very light sprinkling cinnamon

1- Combine all sauce ingredients in small bowl, stir well to evenly incorporate, then set aside.


2 lg. red or green apples, washed, cut from top to bottom into quarters, cut out each core, then slice very thinly into planks – use very sharp, broad, sturdy knife or a mandolin

2 oranges, peeled, cut into small bite size, then remove the pith with sharp, broad, sturdy knife, revealing only the orange rind, stack pieces and cut into matchsticks – save pith to snack on

1 pt. fresh blueberries, washed well and drained

1 lg. banana, peeled and sliced

  • Prep the banana last so it doesn’t turn brown.

1/2 t. turmeric

sev. fresh basil leaves, sliced thinly for garnish

1- In extra-large bowl combine apples, oranges and rind matchsticks, blueberries, banana.

2- Sprinkle with turmeric, then carefully toss till all fruit is colored by the yellow of the turmeric.

3- Add all of sauce, then toss gently to completely coat.

4- Cover and refrigerate for same day service.

5- When ready to serve garnish with fresh sliced basil.

  • It’s best to use the same day with most all fruit salads.
