Who else could live off fruit? Raise your hands! You know I’m putting up both hands 😀 It must be this time of year that does it, it’s hot and I just want juicy, cold fruit all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not complaining 🙂
Let’s talk about the name of this salad shall we… I wasn’t too sure of what to name this. It’s not your typical fruit salad. It’s full of super fruits! So yes, you could take this as “fruit power! salad”. Or you could take it just as a salad that’s full of nutrition that just happens to be made with fruit. Either way, what I mean to say with the title is that this salad is good and good for you.
That being said, you could use this mixture to top your green salad. You could serve this for breakfast, either as a tasty side to your oatmeal or as the main attraction. You could serve this in a little bowl beside your regular lunch. Or you could even serve this for dessert after dinner. It’s really all good.
- 1 C fresh cherries, halved and pit removed
- 1 C grapes, halved
- 2 C fresh blueberries
- 1/2 C walnuts, roughly chopped
- 1/4 C unsweetened shredded coconut or flaked coconut
- juice of 1/2 lime
- juice of 1 small orange
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- pinch of salt
In a bowl combine the cherries, grapes, blueberries, walnuts and coconut. In a small bowl combine the lime and orange juices and the maple syrup and pinch of salt. Mix well and pour over the fruit salad. Serve or store in the fridge until ready to serve.
If storing overnight, consider adding the coconut before serving as it will soften slightly if it sits with the salad.
