Incredible Summer Fruit Salad

If you have been looking for a delicious, easy and tasty dish to serve at your next dinner party or family meal it is time to stop looking. You have found it in this delicious fruit salad served inside a clear glass bowl, the perfect addition, and special treat. The glass bowl gives the salad an elegant look and is the perfect centerpiece for any occasion. Start by selecting your favorite fruits like mangoes, bananas, pineapple, watermelon, apples, and cantaloupe.

This is a very kid-friendly recipe and if you have children at home that like to help with dinner, encourage those skills, and invite them to help create this incredible summer fruit salad. Enhance math skills by letting them measure the cup of juice. They can rinse, dry, and remove the grapes from the stem. Explain that fruit salad is much like a stew because you can take your favorite ingredients regardless of the quantity and make a delicious meal. All ingredients in this recipe are suggestions except for the cup of fruit juice. For instance, if you only have 1 banana instead of 3, cut the slices a bit thinner to look like more and compensate with something else, like marshmallows or oranges.

Readily available in summer, these fruits are also available during the winter at your local supermarket or produce store. Use as many fresh fruits as possible, since that gives the perfect taste and melody for the ingredients involved. When fresh ingredients are not available, use canned fruit. Drain the juice first, since the sweetness kills much of the fruit flavor. If you would like to add more fruit to this salad for additional variety and flavor, try seedless grapes, Kiwi fruit, or even maraschino cherries.
