“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s Party’!” Robin Williams
Although I now live in a world where fresh fruit isn’t entirely seasonal, I sometimes forget how fortunate I am to have so much abundance always available, alliteratively speaking. And I sometimes forget how refreshing a simple fruit salad can be. Here’s a fruit salad recipe that’s almost as simple as my mind when I’m first getting up in the morning and asking pertinent questions, such as, “What day is it?”
1 large apple, peeled and sliced
1 pear, sliced
2 large bananas, peeled and sliced
3 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
3 clementines, or navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
½ cup pomegranate seeds
1 Tablespoon honey
3 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Tablespoons fresh mint, optional
In a large bowl combine the fruit. Lightly toss.
In a small bowl whisk together honey, lime juice, and mint. Drizzle over fruit and mix lightly. Serve to 2 or 4 people or cut down on the ingredients if you’re making this for yourself.
Did I mention the optional strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries? Pineapple would be good, too. This is a time to enjoy your favorite fruits in a combination that makes your little heart go pitter pat. Add a muffin for a grown up version of another happy meal!
