Fruit Salad for #SundaySupper {Memorial Day #Picnic}

Are you ready for summer and Memorial Day picnic?  I can tell you that the entire #SundaySupper team is ready for the festivities with today's picnic hosted by Katy of Happy Baking Days.  Thank you so much for hosting the event today, Katy!

This week I bring one of our favorite desserts that is perfect any time of year.  It is super easy, adapts to the season by changing the fruit, and it is always a hit.  I probably should have called it Fruit Salad a la mode....Serve it at the picnic as a delicious side, a snack, or dessert.  Serve it with {Soy/Rice/Almond/Hemp/Cow} ice "cream", and/or some {vegan} whip cream, or just plain all by itself.  Make it ahead of time, just be sure to add enough lemon juice and yes, there is absolutely no sugar needed - it is delicious just like it is...

   Fruit Salad 

  • 1 pineapple, cored, and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 pint of strawberries washed and cleaned
  • 1 apple washed, cored, and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 jicama peeled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 oranges peeled, and cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 Tbl fresh mint rinsed and julienned
  • juice of 1 lemon 
  1. Put all of the fruit into a large serving bowl
  2. Top with mint, and pour lemon juice over all of the fruit
  3. Toss the fruit and make sure all of it gets coated with the lemon juice

Note: Cover and set aside until you are ready to serve it;  it is best to mix the fruit at least a couple of
          hours before serving.  Be sure to serve it at room temperature.  This works with any of your
          favorite fruit.
