Here's one for the Mommies

"Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy!"

Except this one sure isn't the Wiggles fruit salad. I tried a new recipe recently that is too delicious not to share. It's Margarita Fruit Salad, and is a perfect side dish for a Mexican-themed cookout.

  • 3 T tequila
  • 3 T Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • 3 T orange marmalade
  • 2 T lime juice
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 4 oranges peeled, sectioned and cut in small pieces
  • 1 honeydew melon, rind and seeds removed, cut in small pieces
  • 1 cantaloupe, rind and seeds removed and cut in small pieces
Mix together the tequila, Triple Sec/Cointreau, orange marmalade, & lime juice. Add fruit and stir to combine. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend.

Cheers, ladies!
