Simple Fresh Fruit Salad

Simple Fresh Fruit Salad

  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
  • Honeydew Melon
  • Strawberries
  • Grapes, Red and Green
  • Granny Smith Apples
  • Gala Apples
  • Pineapple (can/cans of DOLE® chunk)
  • Mint, optional

Simply cut the fruit into bites size chunks and toss. I used DOLE® canned pineapple and use part of the juice as a sauce for the salad. If you use apple or a fruit that might brown, quickly toss in the pineapple juice after slicing.
