Author Lucretia Bingham, who grew up in the Bahamas, says that a simple cilantro-spiked fruit dessert her mother used to make at home inspired this recipe. It is best assembled immediately before serving.
Juice of 2 limes
2 tbsp. light corn syrup
2 tbsp. sherry vinegar
1 small pineapple
2 bananas, peeled
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1. Whisk together lime juice, corn syrup, and sherry vinegar in a large bowl.
2. Peel, core, and remove the eyes from the pineapple, then cut into large chunks.
3. Peel oranges, carefully remove all pith, then, using a sharp paring knife, cut oranges (between membranes) into sections. Slice bananas into 1/4''-thick rounds. Add fruit to dressing, mix gently, then add raisins and ciilantro and toss well.
