A refreshing contrast to traditional fruit salad, this Jaffa delight combines citrus fruits with litchis, dates, raisins and almonds, marinated in sweet wine.


1 tin litchis, plus juice
2 Jaffa (pink) grapefruit, segmented
4 oranges, segmented
1 small tin mandarins slices
Half cup slivered dates
Half cup raisins or cranberries or both
Half cup slivered or chopped almonds
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Quarter cup brown sugar
Quarter cup sweet red wine


  1. Put all ingredients, except the dates and almonds, together in a big bowl.
  2. Let stand at least an hour.
  3. The dates/almonds are sprinkled over the salad just before serving.
  4. Garnish the salad bowl or individual servers with mint sprigs and serve with vanilla ice cream.

Bon Appetit! B’teiavon!

One thought on “Jaffa Fruit Salad

  1. unfortunately I can’t buy Jaffa oranges where I live in western Colorado.
    I miss Jaffa Oranges and for that matter most if not all Israeli citrus fruit and other Israeli fruit. I miss living in Israel. It was hard, but at the same time spiritually uplifting.
