I make this all of the time during the summer. It is refreshing to have after a heavy meal instead of dessert.

Ingredients For fresh fruit salad

  • 3 c
    florida's natural orange juice (i use the one with the most pulp)
  • 1
    8 oz. dole pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1
    15 oz mandarin oranges, drained
  • 2 lg
    fuji apples, unpeeled (i use organic since the prices for organic and non- organic are about the same now for apples)
  • 2
    ripe bananas just starting to show sugar spots, sliced
  • 3
    dozen green grapes, sliced in half or you can leave them whole (buy grapes that have a yellow tinge to them since they are the ripest)

How To Make fresh fruit salad

  • 1
    Pour the orange juice into a medium sized bowl
  • 2
    Add the drained pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges
  • 3
    Slice the bananas and add to the bowl
  • 4
    Cut the unpeeled Fuji apples into bite size bits and add to the bowl
  • 5
    Slice the green grapes and add to the bowl
  • 6
    Stir to coat all of the fruit
  • 7
    Best if left covered in the frig overnight. The orange juice soaks up the flavors of the fruit.
  • 8
    Great summer fruit to add: watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, kiwi, plums. ***I have tried strawberries in the past, but they are not sweet enough to counteract the slight bitterness of the orange juice
