Festive Summer Fruit Salads.

With the abundance and variety of fresh fruits available this time of year, there’s no need to cook to have a nutritious and satisfying side dish for lunch or dinner.   Make a FRUIT SALAD.  It’s a perfect dish to bring to a picnic or pot luck meal.   There are so many ways you can combine fruits to make a delicious treat. 

Here are TWO I’ve had recently.  Don’t be afraid to experiment.  Add some cinnamon or a dash of vanilla extract.  Sprinkle on some slivered or sliced almonds, chia seeds, or sunflower seeds.  As long as the fruit is fresh, it ALL TASTES GREAT!  Added Bonus:  The variety of bright colors provides a large helping of essential vitamins, and has HUGE antioxidant benefits.
