Delhi Fruit Chaat

A seasonal salad of oranges, apples, guava, sweet potato, goose berries and pine nuts in orange juice and canola or olive oil dressing. This light fruit chaat uses local fruit, is low in salt and can be enjoyed at any time of day. Canola oil or olive oil in this fruit chaat does not interfere with the citrus of the oranges as it is neutral in taste.
