A few weeks ago I shared a picture of this fruit salad in a Family Meals on a Budget post. You guys mentioned how amazing it looked (it tasted even better), so I thought I'd share how I make it. Fruit salads make great side dishes because they can use up whatever fruit you have lingering in your fridge and they only take a few minutes to make. Oh and the fact that they are generally a crowd pleaser doesn't hurt either :)
For me I prefer to have bananas in all of my fruit salads. It is a preference of mine, so I always start with that. I then pulled out all the other fruits I wanted to include in my salad. Below I have listed what I included and the measurements. For the strawberries I used about 8. My strawberries were pretty large. You pretty much want to eye ball it. You want a colorful, rainbow salad. The more colors, the more yummy it will be. For reals :)
Kiwi Banana Fruit Salad
3 banana, sliced
5 small kiwi, sliced
2 apples, chopped
2 handfuls of blueberries
8 strawberries, hulled and chopped
1 small bunch of grapes (like it could fit in the palm of your hand)
Combine all fruit together and toss. Serve and enjoy!
Easy peasy right? I like to keep my grapes whole, but you could totally slice them in half as well. Oh and placing it in a fun dish is always a must! This vintage Pyrex dish was my grandmothers. I love thinking of all the fabulous dishes she must have served in it. I am thankful I get to carry on that tradition with my own family. :)
How do you enjoy fruit salad?
