Nutty Fruit Salad

Lately I have been chowing down on fruit like there’s no tomorrow.  Oranges, can’t get enough of them, apples, oh so delicious!  I always have trouble getting my kids to eat enough fruit, I’m sure some of you can relate.  One day I said we could have fruit salad for dessert, they weren’t sure about it, but thought it sounded fun.  Well, I can’t get my son to stop eating it!  Which is good, because by the time I cut up 4 different kinds of fruit, that’s a LOT of fruit salad.

Pretty much every morning I make a fruit salad for me and my little guy.  Today I decided to kick mine up a notch and made it “nutty”.  Actually more seedy than nutty, but nutty fruit salad sounded better than seedy fruit salad.

Fruit salad is so simple and so delicious, you really can’t go wrong, cut up your fruit of choice, put it in a bowl and BAM, fruit salad.  Fruit is so delicious on its own, you don’t need to add anything else, you can, but you don’t really need to.

Super simple, slice everything up, mix it together and enjoy!  A couple tools that I absolutely LOVE for cutting up fruit is my pineapple slicer, apple slicer and my orange slicer.  Makes the job so quick and easy!
