Fruit Salad

Since it is now (finally) feeling like summer out, what better salad to have on hand for a BBQ than fruit salad? I made a huge batch of this when we had some friends and their little boys over for a weekend, and it turned out to be an awesome snack for the kids when we needed something fast!

The best part about fruit salad is that you can easily customize it with whatever is in season, or by using your favorite fruits and leaving out those you are less than fond of.

If you are using a large variety of fruit, keep in mind that you do not need a lot of each one. It will add up quickly once you start cutting it up! 

Fruit Salad

  • 1 pineapple
  • 4 kiwis
  • 2 bananas
  • half dozen strawberries
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 apples
  • 2 peaches
  • half of a small watermelon
  1. Wash all of the fruit well and dry with a towel
  2. Slice up the fruit into bite-size pieces
  3. As you add each fruit to your salad bowl, keep mixing in order to let the different juices mix together
  4. Place in the fridge until read to serve
  5. If you want to serve your fruit salad as a treat or dessert, top with whipped cream or serve alongside ice cream!
