I love fruit. But if I buy just one type of fruit, say apples, I never eat all of it. Maybe I’m too picky but I think I get bored and tired of eating the same thing everyday.
But, I’ve found a solution — fruit salad! My grandma used to serve fruit salad during family meals, but she used canned fruit cocktail (to that I now say yuck) and just added in a couple pieces of fresh fruit.
I like to use fresh fruit (berries are on sale right now), but I needed some kind of syrup to make it a real fruit salad. I looked up recipes online, and many of them make it too complicated. I found this recipe and decided to use just honey and lemon juice for the syrup.
In my fruit salad:
- 2 bananas, sliced
- 1 pint strawberries, washed and quartered
- 1 pint blueberries
- 1 red apple, chopped
- 1/3 cup honey
- juice of 1 lemon (helps prevent fruit from becoming brown)
Put the fruit in a bowl. Mix the honey and lemon, and pour over the fruit. Refrigerate. Eat.
How easy is that? Of course you use whatever fruit you want.
