During spring and summer, throwing together a fruit salad is so easy. Dump in some delicious fresh berries, mix, done! I just love berries, so it I only have eyes for them when they are ripe and delicious. But we are heading into the season where a couple of things happen. 1. Berries get super expensive. 2. They taste like crap anyway. So we have to scramble and do something different.
We went to a family get together recently and I was asked to bring fruit. So I put together some of my favorites for this time of year. The only problem is I didn’t want the apples and bananas to turn brown between the time I cut them and serving time. I knew a little lemon juice would help a lot, but I didn’t want it to be too sour so I added a bit of honey too. It is simple, but really delicious, healthy and fresh. It is a perfect fruity side for the fall and winter season… then back to berries!
