Rainbow Fruit Salad

I love spring and summer when fruit and vegetables are in season.  Everything tastes fresh and full of flavor.  When I went to the store the other day, the kiwis were ripe, the mangoes were soft, the strawberries smelled wonderful, and I couldn't resist buying them to make a colorful rainbow fruit salad.

Fruit salad is refreshing, tasty, and feeds a lot of people. It was the perfect dish to bring to the first of the social BBQ's we will go to this year. The empty bowl at the end of the night was a telling sign that people loved it!

Rainbow Fruit Salad

We all know we are supposed to eat a rainbow of colors for health reasons. What better way to get those fruits than in a delicious fruit salad. With just a bit of chopping, you will have a refreshing dish for your next brunch, BBQ, breakfast, or even a snack.

Visit your favorite produce stand, farmers market, or local grocery store to pick the ripest fruits to add to your salad. We love to visit the local farmers market during the summer to get the most fresh produce. This year we planted strawberries in our garden, so I'm hoping that next time we make this delicious salad we can harvest our own berries.

Doesn't this look great? I love the colors together. And the best part? It tasted so light and refreshing. I love to make this for an after school snack, when we go on a picnic, or with our breakfast. It is the perfect side with Mini Cinnamon Rolls. I love to add peaches and fresh picked cherries in the summer.  Add whichever fruits you like best!
