Fruit salad, in my opinion the essential summer dish picnic dish. There are so many different options and typically simple to throw together! This fruit salad is healthy, vitamin rich and chock full of antioxidants to keep us staying young, healthy and looking beautiful! When I read that blackberries and blueberries have anti-aging components in them, I immediately stocked my fridge and freezer up. Especially when they are on sale in the summertime. I love eating them all year round!

Here is the ingredient list; fresh pineapple (NOT canned), blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, a mango and a lemon {I should say half a lemon}.

I’m serious about the pineapple… I’ll never buy Dole cans again!

Halve your strawberries and add them to a medium bowl along with all the other berries and the pineapple. I used a little less than a whole pound of strawberries… because I was snacking 🙂

Slice the “cheeks” of the mango surrounding the pit. The pit is thin and runs virtically so you’ll have to feel for it with your knife and cut around it. Use a small paring knife and cut diagonal cuts through the flesh but not all the way through the skin. Flip the mango “cheek” inside-out and cut off the sections.

I like to do it over the bowl to catch all the mango’s yummy juices… waste not!
