Hello my friends today I am sharing recipe for a fruit salad and what makes this fruit salad so delicious is the balance of the flavors and texture so I’m so happy to share with you.
now a few tips to keep in mind when making fruit salad
1. you have to work with fruit that’s in season and nice and ripe you want it at its peak without being too ripe that it starts to get mushy and it loses its integrity.
2. you have to try to cut your fruit into nice small bite-size pieces that are fairly uniform this is just gonna make it easier for the eater to enjoy their fruits.

Finally a recipe for a fruit salad …….
lets start with a nice large bowl and start with 4 cups of chopped cantaloupe now an easy way to cut cannabis cut up and down and hold it down and cut it in half lengthwise to pick the seeds and see if the calico is ripe. They will take out easily and cut they will be cantaloupe into wedges I like to cut each half in half and take each quarter and cut it in half again until off really easily then I’m gonna stand it up flat side down and you can’t see it but in the center of the mango there’s a very big long pit it runs
in the middle so you have to guess how to find your knife near the center as you can cut straight down around and find other side of the mango I like to call these the mango cheeks then I come back and just trim off any extra mango on each side of the pit if you make sure there is extra mango meat around the hole just cut it and that should be a cook if I have all the mango meat except mango then just gonna cut it into slices take it around and chop it up.
Next we have two cups of red grapes and for these I just like to slice them right in half the red grapes add a great pop and a great texture to the fruit salad next up we have two cups of chopped up strawberries so to prep the strawberries just slice off the green top then lay that flat down slice it in half then into quarters and across again.
next take two cups of fresh pineapple now a fun tip if you want to ensure that your pineapple is nice and ripe just tug at the leaves and the leaves on top should come out very easily that’s how you know your pineapple is nice and ripe also it will smell super sweet so those are the two giveaways.
Now my absolute favorite way to cut a pineapple is to trim off the top and the bottom stand it up slice it in half length wise and then you’re gonna see that there’s a core that runs right down the center and this could can be a little tough and a little bit fibrous so what I do is take a knife and I come down in and add an angle on each side of that core and it’s gonna pop right out.
Sometimes if the core is not super tough I’ll save it as a snack for myself and as the kids but I don’t like to put it in the fruit salad then once we have the core out I’m just gonna take this half slice it into quarters and then run my knife right through the center of one quarter rotate chop into bite-sized pieces and then right here where the skin meets the flesh or the meat of the pineapple you want to get your knife as close as
you can and just slice in and around and you’re gonna see that these pineapple wedges will fall right out and there’s very little waste this is hands-down the easiest way I’ve discovered so far how to cut a pineapple.
Next take two cups of chopped Kiwis and my favorite way to prepare a Kiwi cut at the top and the bottom and then again just use a potato peeler to peel off this fuzzy skin then just slice the Kiwi in half length wise lay it down coming to quarters rotate and chop it up super super easy and it adds such great flavor to the fruit salad.
Then the last fruit to add to this fruit salad is one cup of big fat plump blueberries now you could of course take this as an opportunity to mix up your fruit salads and enjoy but if you really want to elevate the flavors of what I like to do is to take one lime with a zester get that into a bowl then add the juice from that line as well.
It’s gonna be somewhere between two and three tablespoons of lime juice and then add a tablespoon of honey whisk that all together and the bright flavors from the lime and that sweetness from the honey.
It just rounds out and really pops the fruit salad so drizzle that right over the bowl and then gently mix it all together and you my friend are going
one of the most delicious fruit salads that you’ve ever made and how easy was that this salad is perfect served as is you could bring it to a cookout or to a barbecue or picnic but sometimes I like to put it in my weekend meal and just put it in an an airtight container and leave it in the fridge anywhere between four and five days.
