A fresh take on fruit salad

I love a salad all year round, but usually stick to your typical green. Boring? Maybe. But I likes what I likes!

This week I’m tossing things up (pun intended) with my spin on a few salads I’ve seen here and there, starting with this fresh fruit one inspired by a recipe in the June ’14 issue of Fitness RX magazine.

It’s so simple there’s really no need to include a “recipe” per se, just cut up your favourite fruits, toss with a few torn basil leaves and sprinkle a little lemon juice on top.

I splashed out and included all kinds of fruits, but I bet it would be equally delicious with just two or three. Here we have fresh cantaloupe, grapefruit, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, kiwi and canned pineapple because I was too lazy to cut up a whole one.

I’d never tried herbs with fruit and the taste surprised me. It’s refreshing and light and anything but boring.

    We love all salad but my go to is coleslaw. Last year I successfully grew cabbage in the garden and I make my own sauce. Thanks for sharing about your tasty fruit salad. I shared it with my friends.
