Powerful Energy with Apple, Mango, and Papaya Fruit Salad

It is easy to wonder about some of the best fruits for people to eat and the answer is easy because they are in this salad: apples, mangoes, and papayas. In some countries like the Dominican Republic, the Papaya vendor is as popular as the ice cream truck in the United States. A chilled slice of fruit is a special treat and with the AMP salad, you will discover that nutrition, taste and sweetness go together very well. Cherries, blackberries, raspberries, and boysenberries are great additions, but do not add bananas or Kiwi fruit with this particular fruit salad.

Many children and adults like cut fruit because it is tasty, has different textures, and is a simple but satisfying snack at school, home or work. Even on the go while driving the car, it is easy to pick up a slice of apple and munch on it until you get to work. The delicious taste of these healthy foods will provide a welcome break from processed sugar and provide important vitamins and minerals needed for the day. That subtle bittersweet taste of mango will hit the spot when combined with the sweet taste of apple.

As going green and eating green become more popular every day it is important to remember that fruits are a healthy and easy way to gear up your diet in a way it has not seen before. Provide these tasty treats for the children because they will enjoy the fruits and remember that they taste good. Make a creative and delightful fruit treat for the next school event, parent teacher meeting or sporting event, whether it is a tailgate party or a team celebration potluck.

A person can never get enough of the energy and power delivered by apples, mangoes and papaya (AMP) and the reference to energy is to remind your children how important fresh fruits are in our diets. If you notice anyone dragging in a sluggish manner make up some of this delicious treat and watch the spirits rise.

Big AMP Fruit Salad
Summary: Apple, mango and papaya team up as a delicious fruity trio, and then we are adding apple cider to the mixture too, to make an energy-boosting fruit salad recipe.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 6 Golden or Red Delicious apples
  • 3 ripe mangoes
  • 3 ripe papayas
  • ¼ cup apple cider
  1. Rinse off the fruit and dry it with a paper towel before peeling. If you have a compost heap, the peelings are great for the soil.
  2. Get out a large bowl for the salad.
  3. Peel and core the apples. Cut into pieces so anyone wishing to pick up a piece by hand can do so while remaining the perfect size for a fork. Put the pieces into the bowl.
  4. Slice the mangoes in half and take out the pit. Peel them and cut them to the same size of the apples, adding them with the apples.
  5. Cut the papaya in half and get rid of as many seeds as possible. Peel the papayas and cut them to the same size as the mangoes and apples. Put the chunks in with the other fruit.
  6. Pour the apple cider over the fruit and stir everything for two minutes. Put a cover or plastic wrap over the bowl and place it in the refrigerator to cool and combine the flavors. It will be ready to serve after an hour.
  7. When you are ready to serve the salad, dish it up with a serving spoon into separate small glass bowls. A serving of fruit will produce energy as well as give a perfect amount of flavor and taste.
