WHY I LOVE MAKING THIS SUMMER FRUIT SALAD

Summers in the Midwest aren’t long so we have to enjoy fruits in the season as often as we can. This post shows you how to make a fruit salad step by step so you have a great way to up a bunch of different fruits and be able to share it with others.

PUTTING TOGETHER A FRUIT SALAD WITH A TWIST
This is such a perfect salad for summer!
Throw a ton of fruit into a giant bowl. So technical, right? I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe and watermelon.
Add juice from 1 lemon.
And then throw in a little something that’ll make people say, “Mmm, what IS that?!” Dry pudding mix! I used vanilla flavor, but feel free to experiment!
Mix it all together and chill until you are ready to serve. Enjoy!
Have a great week!
