Late Spring and Summer are wonderful because so many produce are available fresh and ready. I like eating fruit salad because it’s ready made to consume over a couple days. It’s also versatile that you can use any fruit you have on hand.
My kids like to eat it, which makes it a perfect addition to lunchtime. They like a dollop of whipped cream on top. Feel free to use Cool Whip if that’s your thing.
Sometimes, for breakfast I like to prepare a simple parfait. You can use your fruit salad mix, yogurt and granola-layer for a tasty morning treat.
Simple Fruit Salad-
- 1 Granny Smith apple
- 1 Banana
- 1 can mandarin oranges (drained)
- 1/2 pint strawberries
- Juice from half a lemon
1. Chop up the apples, strawberries and banana and add to bowl. Dump oranges on top. Give a quick, but gentle toss.
3. Squeeze lemon juice over top fruit to prevent browning. Stir again and serve up with yogurt or whipped cream.
This makes a wonderful afternoon or evening snack too. The evenings are the hardest time for me to stay away from my pantry. This is a guiltless snack.
