Summer Fruit Salad really is the BEST! So refreshing and absolutely beautiful!
Of course, you can vary up the fruits you use to fit your own tastes.
SUMMER FRUIT SALAD IS EASY TO PREPARE
Summer is chock full of all types of delicious, refreshing produce.
Get all the fresh fruit you can get your hands on to make this glorious salad.
Ah, fresh fruit. Nothing much better!
Adding a dash of Cointreau adds a nice touch to the simple dressing.
Of course, it’s optional, but we think it provides even a little more brightness to the beautiful salad.
And the perfect topping to this is toasted coconut.
A little ‘crunch’ is perfect with the juicy fruit.
Keep an eye on them though, don’t let the coconut burn!
PERFECT FOR A BBQ, PICNIC OR POOL PARTY
Who doesn’t love a big ole bowl of fresh fruit?
One of mother nature’s best gifts!
The great thing about this Summer Fruit Salad is the acid from the lemon and the lime juice keep the fruit from oxidizing and turning brownish, so it stays gorgeous all day!
This salad is so refreshing and adaptable to all kinds of tastes. Just go with whatever fruits and berries are your summertime favorite!
The best salad in town! We love serving this with our Mexican-Style Grilled Corn!
