Candle Salad



  • ~ Pineapple Rings
  • ~ Banana
  • ~ Leafy Lettuce
  • ~ Carrot Peel


Place pineapple ring on some leafy lettuce. Place half or a whole peeled banana (depending on the size) in the center of the pineapple ring) it should stand up by itself). Cut off the pointed end of the banana. Next make a flame for the "candle" by peeling off a piece of carrot with a potato peeler. Roll the carrot strip into a circle, overlapping the two ends of a carrot on the other end down into the top of the banana. Pinch the carrot ring to make it more pointed.

Yield: 1 serving (1/2 cup) fruit at snack.
