Summer is already here and it’s almost July, can you believe it? It’s so hard for me to believe that June is almost over. And there’s only 6 months left until Christmas! Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. I may or may not sing Christmas music all year round…but that’s a different story. Let’s just soak up these summer days while they last.
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite dishes- Summer Fruit Salad. I love fruit so much. Whenever I see that it’s in season and on sale, I’m sure to buy it and whip up a little fruit salad. And it always hits the spot. Most of the time, I make fruit salads with strawberries, blackberries, grapes, blueberries, and peaches but this time, I found some gorgeous mangoes at the store and just had to get a few of them. Even though mangoes are so big, you don’t really get too much fruit from them because they have such a large pit.
I added peaches, grapes, blueberries and cherries to the mango to make a colorful and delicious medley. There was even a sprinkle of brown sugar on top! Mmmmm…deliciousness to my taste buds and tummy! I love making fruit salads because they are so simple and take little time to make. They’re perfect for a friend or family get together or a summer evening on the patio.
The only thing that would make this any better would be a scoop, or two, of some creamy vanilla bean ice cream. Please excuse me while I eat this whole bowl. Give it a try and see if your fruit salad screams summer!
