Fruit salad recipes don't have to be fancy or made with a large number of different ingredients. I'm quite happy with "Berries in a Bowl" most days-even if I only have 1 type.
Just cutting up an apple and putting it on a plate or in a bowl can be enough to call it a fruit salad.
Of course you probably want to make something a little more interesting and that's where we will start.
Let's go back to that bowl of sliced apple for a second and add a couple spoonfuls of yogurt to it.
Now we have something that makes that apple a day a little more enticing.
If you were to add a sliced up banana you would have my favorite breakfast as it's pictured below:
I added a little sprinkle of cinnamon to this.
When I make a large fruit salad I simply go to the grocery store and buy 1 or 2 of a variety of different fruits.
I like to really mix it up with citrus, berries, melons, apples, bananas, peaches, and whatever else I can find.
I sometimes mix fresh and canned fruits which gives the salad lots of extra juice. Sometime I get carried away though and have a huge salad which doesn't last too long.
For the salad pictured here I used:
6 large strawberries-sliced
honeydew melon balls from 1/2 of a melon
Keep salad in the refrigerator covered with clear plastic wrap. This salad should be eaten within 1 day as some of the ingredients will get mushy and brown over time.
You can serve this dish as is or dress it with a whipped topping, yogurt, or instant pudding.
Ambrosia Salad-3 different versions of the popular dessert salad. A creamy dressing base with oranges, pineapple, coconut, and marshmallows...
Frog Eye Salad -Very similar to the Ambrosia above, this oddly named salad is made with small pasta, fruit and whipped cream style dressing...
Grape Salad-A simple bowl of grapes with either a cream cheese dressing or a non-dairy coconut milk paste dressing. Another dessert salad-I love dessert...
