Fresh Fruit Salad



Sometimes in the white of Winter you need a touch of colour to brighten things up! Would you agree? An easy and delicious way to achieve this might be by the likes of  a fresh fruit salad.  All that vitamin C in a cheerful bowl sure does the trick for me.  Because we’re in January, in Canada, these aren’t local fruit – but they are from our Southern Neighbours.  Blueberries and strawberries just flooded the supermarkets and they’re a fantastic price this week! What else is seasonal? Oranges and grapefruits. I eat 1-2 a day and I really do think it helps keep sickness away.  What do you enjoy in your fruit salad? Honestly, I think I could have just about any combination of fresh fruits!  But for this one, I used…

Fresh Fruit Salad
Serves 4-6
1 diced orange
1 cup sliced strawberries
3/4 cup blueberries
2 diced fiji apples
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 diced grapefruit
1/2 fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup water

  1. Wash all of your fruit, thoroughly.  Slice and dice oranges, strawberries, apples, and grapefruit.
  2. Combine in a medium serving bowl with frozen raspberries (why frozen? Because they were flash frozen & thaw beautifully…if fresh in your area, then by all means, use fresh!)
  3. Mix orange juice, water, and lemon juice together. Pour over the fruit salad.
  4. Enjoy!

    There is nothing like a big bowl of fresh fruit to make you feel like you’re in spring or summer.
