Acidity in the lemon juice, grapefruit, and pineapple keeps the apple from browning, so you can prepare this colorful side up to a full day in advance.
1 cup diced fresh pineapple
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
2 cups diced Fuji or Gala apple (about 2 apples)
1 cup pink grapefruit sections (about 1 large grapefruit)
1 cup seedless red grapes, halved
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier (orange-flavored liqueur)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Combine diced pineapple, apple juice, honey, and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook for 2 minutes or until honey dissolves, stirring frequently. Pour into a large bowl. Add apple and remaining ingredients, and toss gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Discard cinnamon stick.
Very very good! So easy to make and leftovers hold up very well without getting brown. Will definitely make again. Nice wintery flavor. I added about 1/4 cup Grand Marnier just to finish off the bottle and it wasn't too much at all.
I have been making this recipe for a few months now, for family and friends - DELICIOUS, is the best word to describe it! I usually bring it to parties as a desert. I have used it for lunch buffet. I often substitute frozen OJ for the Grand Marnier.
