One of my favorite things about summer is the produce.
The veggies are wonderful, and the fruit is just to die for.
We eat a lot of just sliced fruit at our house as sides for our suppers and lunches. But for a special treat, the kids ask for fruit salad. It really is more like a dessert than a side, so they usually have it at the end of a meal. :)
Because it transports well, I’ve taken my fruit salad to cookouts and parties—it’s pretty, so it makes a nice splash when I bring it in.
2 cups of grapes
2 bananas, sliced (soak the slices in lemon juice to keep them from browning)
1 pint fresh strawberries
Sliced pineapple (sometimes I’ll cheat and buy the canned chunks—20 ounce size)
3 sliced kiwis
21 ounce can of peach pie filling
1/2 t cinnamon
It’s sweet and refreshing…and easy. The longest part of the whole process is the slicing, and I’ve gotten so that I’m able to do it pretty fast—because I want to start eating the salad!
