Fruit Salad

This dish is a welcome fresh, sweet accompaniment to any spicy or breakfast dish... especially one where you need your family to get in a serving or two of fresh produce (think pancakes, cinnamon rolls, breakfast burritos). This recipe is very simple. My only advice - beware the banana. A little bit goes a long, long way.

1 orange, diced
1/2 cup pineapple, diced
1 apple diced (I peel mine)
2 large strawberries, diced
1/2 medium banana diced
1/2 teaspoon sugar
juice of one lemon slice

Dice all ingredients. Mix everything well in a bowl. Be sure to let it sit for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy !

So good! It always make me think of sitting down to eat with my Paw Paw Walter.

Another good way to make fruit salad if you are in a pinch and don't have a lot of fresh fruit, is to use a large can of sliced peaches (in their own juice) with cans of drained fruit cocktail, pineapples, bananas and grapes. Drain peaches but save juice. Drain pineapples and save that juice as well. Put your bananas in the pineapple juice for a minute to keep them from turning brown. Then drain everything and mix together. Then take a small box of instant vanilla (or cheesecake!) pudding and mix with the reserved peach juice. It will be thick - but just add all the drained fruit to it. It is really really good!! I take it to work alot and everyone loves it!! You can use whatever canned fruit you like, but I always like a pretty mix of peaches, pineapple chunks, fruit cocktail, grapes and bananas. It doesn't matter but you definitely need the large canned peaches and the juice to mix with pudding!

OK it sounds like I meant you could have canned bananas and grapes - I meant everthing else canned except the bananas and grapes (if you have them!!) I don't type very well :)

Your fruit salad looks delicious.

I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving the comments regarding therapy.

It got me thinking and I headed to my company benefits page. I discovered I have EAP and am now seeing a therapist for free.

Thank you.
