Summer Fruit Salad

With Memorial day came the unofficial start of summer and on cue the temperature soared. Then we had rain, a lot of rain, but as soon as it stopped raining the temperature rose again. Typical summer weather - where humidity plays with your hair and the heat makes the afternoon nearly unbearable. One way to beat the heat is to snack on cold summer fruit. This salad helps you do just that.


There is really no recipe. Put together a medley of summer fruit. Dice the bigger ones to bite size pieces and squeeze a little lime juice. I like to add apples to bring it all together. Cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. That is it!

You will need (4 servings)
3-4 Strawberries
a handful of blueberries
a handful grapes
1 apple (I used Fiji)
1 tbsp. lime juice

Put the berries and grapes in a colander, rinse and allow the water to drain.


Core the apple and cut into bit size pieces. Mix in the lime juice and keep aside. The lime juice will keep the apple from turning brown and add a nice tang to the salad. If the strawberries you are using are large, cut them into 3-4 pieces. Cut the large grapes into two, if they are small you can use them whole. Combine all the ingredients and let them chill for a couple of hours.


Enjoy!
