“Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”
With summer time already in full swing here in Central Arkansas, that means we have all of the beautiful, fresh, fruit available right now and let me tell ya, this Easy Summer Fruit Salad is the perfect way to showcase it! There is nothing quite like a gorgeous, tasty, bowl of fruit at a summer potluck, BBQ, Memorial Day Party, or family get-together. If you’re trying to eat healthier and avoid all of the sugary, unhealthy sweets that are usually present at these summer events, this Easy Summer Fruit Salad makes the perfect dessert to bring along!
Let me tell you a little secret…
I’ll be honest with you, this is probably the shortest “recipe” that I’ve ever created – mainly because it’s really not a recipe at all. Yep, I admit it, I’m blogging about a “recipe” that is actually an impostor. Ya wanna know why? I’ll let you in on a little secret. When you buy fresh, in season fruit, you don’t need anything to make the fruit fabulous or tasty other than the fruit itself! Good quality, seasonal fruit doesn’t require sweeteners, sauces, or anything else to be, well, good and fabulous!
Fruit is nature’s candy!
The beauty of this Easy Summer Fruit Salad (besides the obvious beauty of the fruit itself) is that it really only takes about five minutes to make, depending on how much you make. If you’re preparing for a large group of people, just remember to add equal parts of seedless watermelon, blueberries, grapes, and peaches, and double, triple, or quadruple this fruit salad as many times as you want! This summer fruit salad also makes for a great poolside or beach side snack. If you want to prep a bowl to store for snacks I recommend using Pyrex or Anchor Hocking glass bowls with lids and storing it in the fridge or a cooler until it is eaten.
Here’s to a happy and healthy summer to you all! I hope you enjoy some sweetness in your life for the upcoming holiday weekend. Happy and Healthy Snacking!
Easy Summer Fruit Salad
A bowl full of crisp, juicy, sweet summer fruit.
- 2 cups diced seedless watermelon
- 2 cups blueberries
- 2 cups seedless grapes any kind
- 2 cups peeled & diced peaches
Wash, peel, chop, and remove stems from the fruit and add to a pretty, large bowl. Store in the fridge or serve immediately. Enjoy!
This fruit salad does not need any type of sweetener or sauce when seasonal, fresh, fruit is used. I recommend using organic fruit when available, and always select the freshest, prettiest fruit on hand.
