Fancy Fruit Salad

IMG_2911.JPG

Let’s be honest.  I love fruit – and a fruit salad on a hot day can really hit the spot.  But when there is a potluck, how many of us are rushing to the fruit salad? It’s an easy thing to contribute or even offer guests at a dinner party – but adding just a few things can make your fruit salad transform into a unique dish that everyone can get excited about. Even kids!

FANCY FRUIT SALAD

Truly, this can be made with any fruits that are in season.  Get a nice medley in there, and then add the extras. In this one above I used:

3 Oranges

2 Apples

1 Cup of Grapes

THE FANCY EXTRAS

3/4 Cup Cranberries

1/2 Cup Dates

1/3 Cup Shredded Coconut

1/3 Cup Shredded Almonds * (Okay to go nut-free, but the crunch is a really great part of the salad. Crushed walnuts or cashews can be really delicious too).

2-3 Tbs Honey * (Substitute agave if you’re going honey free!)


Simply chop the fruit and put into a mixing bowl. Add the extras and mix! Sprinkle a little extra coconut and drizzle a touch more honey on top as garnish. Enjoy!
