Quick and easy Fruit Salad.

It seems that whenever there is a gathering of our family and I ask, "What would you like for me to bring?" ....the answer is almost always...."Your fruit salad!" Never a big task because it's quick and easy...and always welcome.

I'll let you in on a little secret....it MIGHT take 10 minutes to put together. Here's the recipe. A jar of Sunkist Citrus Salad drained. Ok you could peel your own grapefruit and oranges....but then you have to spend quite a bit of time with seeds and the white strings --- I just let someone else do the work. Add white seedless grapes, strawberries, chunked pineapple (canned in it's own juice is fine, drain the juice), bananas and whatever fruit is in season -- for this one I added kiwi and blueberries. And voila! A refreshing salad to go! Make it once and you'll be asked to bring your "amazing" fruit salad to gatherings again and again. Shhhhh -- just our little secret about how quick and easy it is...ok?

We had a pre-Memorial Day cookout at my brother's home with his "solider boy" Alex. Here he is with his girlfriend Kelsey.

Alex with his Mom and Dad and Grandfather (my Dad).

And one more pose with Mr. Mid-Atlantic and me.

Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend.
See ya!


  1. Hello Martha~ I've got a favor to ask...I would like to invite you over for a visit to see a very special post I've written. I would love it if you could take a few moments to stop by.
    Thank you sweet friend,

  2. What a beautiful family you have! I never think of putting kiwi in my fruit salad. I shall rectify that the next time I make one...thanks to you!
