Summer Fruit Salad

One of the things I love best about summer is all the fresh fruit of the season, especially berries of all kinds. And this is a great fruit salad to make in the summertime because it has blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries…mixed in with lots of other delicious, colorful fruit! This salad also has some canned pineapple chunks and it’s sweetened with the pineapple juice from the can. So there’s no extra sugar, and I think the sweetness is just right. I love all the colors in this fruit salad—it’s so bright and summery!

SUMMER FRUIT SALAD by NancyC

Makes 10 servings

1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice (not syrup), undrained
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup fresh blackberries
1 cup fresh blueberries (you can use 2 cups blueberries if you don’t have blackberries)
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup sliced or halved fresh strawberries (you can use 2 cups fresh strawberries if you don’t have raspberries)
3 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
1 cup halved seedless red grapes
2 medium size bananas, sliced

Combine all ingredients in large bowl, tossing to coat all the fruit with the pineapple juice. Serve immediately.

If you need to make this ahead of time, combine the pineapple, mandarin oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, and grapes, and refrigerate. When it’s close to serving time, add the berries and bananas; gently toss all the fruit and serve.

Note: If you’re using blackberries in this salad, don’t use an enamelware bowl to serve it in–I found from past experience that blackberries can stain enamelware!
