Bonita’s Simple, Fresh Fruit Salad

Salad season is upon us in a big way and if you’re like me I love-making the most out of it. A salad is not limited to just lettuce and tomato, fruits can be a spectacular salad hence making it a fruit salad.

Fruit

Colorful and delicious fruit salad.

What elevates this fruit salad is the wonderful dressing that accompanies it so well.

For the dressing I use one lime squeezed, half of a naval orange, agave nectar, cardamom. Simple and quite luscious.

This salad is ideal for any sort of gathering. Think a wedding, brunch gathering, a tea party, or in a big bowl at home on a Saturday morning. Tasty all by itself, but even more delightful as a topping on a nice slice of cake!

However you choose to enjoy this fruit salad trust me you’ll be making this for the entire summer!

I cannot stress enough how buying local produce is so much better, and 100% more delectable. I can I tell you that blueberries and nectarines are out of sight! Right now. So, do yourself a solid and visit your local grocery are farm stand and load up on these spring/summer fruits.

When you buy fruit in their season these are the times they are sweetest. Buy them in bulk and freeze them to use in any season they will be just as fresh as the day you purchased them.

OK, now that you’re drooling make your list, and make this fruit salad. And tell me all about it on Instagram and be sure to tag #bonitaapplecrumb so that I can shot you out for making and taking such a lovely fruit salad.

  • It's no secret we LOVE! Desserts around here, but eating balanced is key. Desserts taste so much better after eating all your veggies❤️ I gotta say we rarely catch colds and flus around here 🤞🏼and I'm convinced it's because the diet is balanced. I give the kids a shot of apple cider vinegar too, it taste like feet but I believe it works. Try a new veggie for your family this week, and keep adding a new one thereafter. Make salads brilliant, and bright like you 😊

  • Back to school time feels like a marathon! And the hours go by so fast I hardly have a chance to whip them pots up 😂 For me the quickest way to make sure them kids eating there veggies is by roasting them. Toss in some olive oil with garlic salt & peppa, roast for 15-20 mins and there ya have it! I like to serve them with tortillas for veggies tacos 🌮 kids love them 🍅🥕🥗 ________________________________
