Fresh Fruit Salad

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

  • 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


  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
