Best Fruit Salad
I came up with this Best Fruit Salad recipe on total accident. I was in a hurry, and I ran to the store to grab some stuff to throw together for dinner. I thought fruit salad would be good, so I just grabbed some fresh berries and grapes, paid, and ran back to the car. Now, several years later, I’m still making this magnificent, accidental best fruit salad. And I get compliments at cookouts and holidays all the time.
It is seriously so simple and so good, with very little added sugar. A couple tips for making your own. One of my kiddos is a blackberry fiend, so he loves it when I throw some of those in there too. Feel free to experiment with adding blackberries or raspberries. Also, the lemon juice is a MUST. I don’t know why, but the lemon juice really makes or breaks this recipe. And it must be lemon. We tried lime juice once, and it just wasn’t the same. You can, however, sub the 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar for honey, if you’d like.
Chill the fruit salad until you’re ready to eat. Then serve cold. And if you want a real treat, heap some on top of a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream!
