June 9, 2011: Fruit Salad Recipe

Bookmark and Share

During the increasingly hot summer days, nothing is better for a cool and delicious side dish than fruit salad. And with the abundance of fresh fruit available at the grocery store and farmer’s market right now, why not incorporate it into a light lunch or dinner?
This fruit salad consists of watermelon, pineapples and red grapes

There really isn’t much to making a fruit salad other than selecting your favorite varieties of fruit, cutting it up, and combining it in a bowl. Here’s some of my fave fruits:

  • Watermelon, scooped into balls
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Peaches, peeled and sliced
  • Grapes (red, white, or green), halved
  • Cherries
  • Apples, peeled and cut into chunks
  • Pineapple, cut into chunks
  • Plums, peeled and sliced

If you like a dressing on your fruit salad, try using a container of vanilla yogurt or a bit of honey thinned with the juice of a fresh lime. Amaretto and cream is another good option – particularly delish on peaches and raspberries.

It’s summer so enjoy the fresh fruit while you can!
