Summer is officially here, and with it the melting heat. When the weather outside has decided to go insane…. I usually crave something COOL, fruity, and refreshing with a crisp feeling. Then my RED fruit salad steps in and saves the day!
Ingredients for red fruit salad:
3 – cups watermelon (cut into 1 inch cubes)
2 – cups strawberries (each strawberry cut into 4 pieces)
1 – cup plums (each cut into 8 pieces)
1 – cup rainier cherries (cut in half)
1/8 – cup sugar
In a big bowl add all fruit, and mix well. Sprinkle sugar over top, mix well, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes in refrigerator. Garnish with mint or slice little pieces in with fruit.
Red Fruit Salad Tip: Serve in little bowl over ice cream. Top a plain yellow cake with fruit salad and whip cream. Or eat it all on it’s own.
