Simple Fruit Salad

posted by Andrea | 07/25/2010

This fruit salad is simple and delicious; it’s probably one of my favorites to date.

One reason I love it so much is because you really can’t mess it up (I promise)! Use whatever seasonal fruits you have on hand and feel free to throw in a few frozen berries, canned fruit, or anything that’s a little past its prime.

And did I mention that it only takes about 15 minutes to make?

Ingredients:

Mix and match your favorite fruits and figure about 1 cup of fruit per person.

Here are the fruits I used. Try not to start drooling!

  • 1 quart strawberries — sliced
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 c. blackberries
  • 1 c. sweet cherries — pitted and halved
  • 2 c. seedless green grapes — halved
  • 3 bananas — sliced
  • 3 Granny Smith apples - chunked
  • 1 15 oz. can Mandarin Oranges — drained (juices reserved)
  • 1 21 oz. can peach pie filling

Directions:

  • Combine all fruit in a large bowl.
  • Mix Mandarin Orange juice with pie filling
  • Gently stir pie filling mixture into fruit.
  • Let mixture chill for one hour before serving.

I said it was simple!

Bring this dish to your next picnic — or to the table for dinner tonight. I guarantee it won’t last long!

    The grocery store didn’t have peach pie filling. (!!!!!) Is there a substitute you like to use or is that a must?

    Sounds yummy! And if you leave out the pie filling it’s 0 PointsPlus on Weight Watchers. (With the filling it’s 2PPV for 1/8 of the recipe.)

    This is an easy delicious recipe. The peach filling was a little too sweet for my taste, so I used 1/2 apricot and 1/2 almond pastry filling in its place. Perfect!
