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

Ingredients

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 large
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

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pour the orange juice into a medium sized bowl
  • 2Add the drained pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges
  • 3Slice the bananas and add to the bowl
  • 4Cut the unpeeled Fuji apples into bite size bits and add to the bowl
  • 5Slice the green grapes and add to the bowl
  • 6Stir to coat all of the fruit
  • 7Best if left covered in the frig overnight. The orange juice soaks up the flavors of the fruit.
  • 8Great 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
