WHY I LOVE MAKING THIS SUMMER FRUIT SALAD
I love summer fruits – all the berries and tropical fruits, vine picked, fresh from the trees or patches. Watermelon smells delicious and together the combination of juices create a tasty dessert. 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!
