Fruit salad: yummy yummy

Heather says:

First, I’ll apologize to everyone with preschoolers who now has a song stuck in their heads.

There is no need to wait until you have been suckered into bringing something to a pot luck or picnic to make an appetizing fruit salad. With the recent heat wave, I thought a cool fruit salad might be a nice treat.

Take whatever you have on hand, cut into bite-size pieces. Stir in a binder like yogurt or pudding and refrigerate to allow the flavors to mingle.

Today’s recipe:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup watermelon
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup grapes
  • ~ 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup vanilla pudding

Stir, cover, refrigerate. The hardest part… waiting until AFTER lunch to serve.

What do you like in you fruit salad?

    Candied Bacon?! I did not know bacon could be made even better than it already is. Oh, joy, joy, joy. This is a happy day. Now I’d better buy some stretchy waist pants:)We will be eating candied bacon on EVERYTHING.

    peaches (or nectarines)
    and wine (best part)
    for kiddos, simple syrup and
    a splash of white grape juice
    gets things goings.

    Apples, oranges (plus extra juice), peaches (canned, with the syrup), bananas, grapes, kiwis, plums, strawberries. That is a typical summer Argentine fruit salad.

    another Margo. interesting. 🙂

    I like fruit salad, and I really like chicken salad with fruit cut up in it! Don’t you guys have a good chicken salad recipe? Should I check the archives? 🙂

    i usually squeeze an orange over it, probably has a similar effect as the lime. i also prefer some kiwi in it, when i have it.

    My aunt made one that I love: along with whatever fruit on hand, she puts in mango. Then she mixes it all with the juice of one lime lightly sweetened with sugar. The flavor just pops!
