Simmer is here and the heat is on! It hit over 100 degrees this week on several occasions, it’s hot. Hot and icky. Doesn’t make moving fun, but this fruit salad certainly can cheer anyone up even through stressful days. The best thing about this salad is that you can toss in whatever you want. I will say that the number one fruit you really do need is the pineapple, it’s what makes the juice. Fresh is always best, pick in season fruit and ripe as this doesn’t stay fresh or good very long. Make hours before hand, no longer than that.
It’s light, refreshing and always a welcome on any table. I’ve never had any leftovers when I make it. It only takes fruit and a sprinkle of vanilla pudding mix to make this brightly colored dish. Nope, not even kidding, that’s how simple it is.

On to the recipe
- 1lb sliced strawberries
- 1 pint blue berries
- 1 pint raspberries
- 1 pint blackberries
- 1 pineapple sliced, then cubed, save the juice
- *grapes are optional about 1/2lb
- 1 box vanilla instant pudding mix
- 1 lime
- Before slicing any fruit, wash it and dry it off. Cut, slice and cube . Mix into a large serving bowl. Pour in the pineapple juice and squeeze the lime over the mixture. Sprinkle the top of the fruit with the pudding mix. Just sprinkle the top ( you will not empty the pouch) Mix the fruit up. Sprinkle and mix twice more. I don't usually ever use the whole pouch, just until I see the juice is more thick. Make sure you mix well. Chill before serving.
