I first had this colorful salad at a tailgate before a Jimmy Buffett concert, thus the name! It's perfect for spring and summer get-togethers when the ingredients are fresh and ripe. My supper club likes it even better with Buffett playing in the background! Serve with poppy seed dressing.

Directions

  1. Toss the lettuce, strawberries, blueberries, mango, tomatoes, raisins, almonds, and onions together in a salad bowl. Cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle. Do not refrigerate more than 4 hours.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp and evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble and sprinkle over the salad to serve.

I posted the original recipe and recently substitued canned (drained) mandarin oranges for the mangoes, which can be messy to prepare. I loved it! Any type of greens would work well--spinach, Romaine, mixed baby greens.

A friend of mine brought this to a party last night, and it didn't last long. The entire group loved it, and she told us to come here and get the recipe. I bet I'm not the only one who did. The salad had so many unusual combinations that worked beautifully together! I did not put dressing on my first helping and it was delicious without it. I did put poppyseed dressing on my second helping, and wow. I am not a salad fan, but this one won me over!

We really enjoyed this salad. Only things we would change are using grapes instead of raisins and we didn't care for the red onion in the recipe and would leave it out next time.
