Moist Tropical Fruit Quick Bread

Orange, pineapple and banana blend together and make a great tropical  fruit quick bread. Moist and tender, this bread is my favorite to go with chicken salad. We eat a big variety of salads in the summer and it goes great with just about all of them. Maybe too good, I keep having to make double batches!

When I think about it, I like it with a lot of foods and it’s perfect with a cup of coffee, anytime.

I’ve probably mentioned that I live on a popular lake in Northern Michigan and summer brings it’s share of company. I try to have extra bread in the freezer for unexpected guests. This one freezes perfectly and it’s comforting to have on hand.
