You may remember me mentioning that I wanted to go berry picking in my summer bucket list. Well, I got a chance to a few days ago!
There’s nothing like walking around a lovely orchard when it’s 95°F with 80% humidity. It’s like walking around a sauna except I was wearing more than a towel.
In honor of the one and a half pounds of berries picked (and probably eaten within 24 hours), I made a fruit salad.
I don’t mean to insult your intelligence since this fruit salad is basically just fresh fruit. I just want to share one of my favorite (EASY!) summer recipes with you.
Super refreshing, super tasty, super healthy, super delicious, super sonic.
Okay, maybe not super sonic, but I think you get the idea.
Fresh Summer Fruit Salad
This fruit salad is healthy and refreshing. It’s wonderful with your morning yogurt or as the perfect summery side dish.
You can really make this with whatever ingredients you’d like – or whatever is in your kitchen. If you like a certain fruit more than others, you can definitely add more. Since I’m always changing the fruit I use, it has a different flavor profile every time I make it.
- 2 medium apples, diced
- 2 nectaries, diced
- 1 naval orange, chopped
- 10 strawberries, hulled and diced
- 1/2 pint of blueberriers
- 1 cup green grapes, sliced in half
- juice of one lemon
- juice of one lime
These are the fruits I used, but you could also add peaches, mango, pineapple, melon, raspberries, blackberries, kiwi, grapefruit, etc. Try adding a bit of fresh mint, too!
1. In a large bowl combine all the chopped fruit. Drizzle with lemon and lime juice. Stir well. Serve chilled.
