Summer Fruit Salad / #OurFamilyTable

I love summer, but I can easily get overheated when the high temperatures hit! Once this happens, the last thing I want to do is prepare a meal, and I lose my enthusiasm for grilling.

When the hottest part of summer comes around, salads are on the menu quite a bit. I often grill chicken or steak for salads early in the morning to avoid the afternoon heat, and use it later in the day, for lunch or dinner.

But today I decided on a Summer Fruit Salad! I included a few things you won't find in the traditional fruit salad, but I know you will love them.

All the ingredients I used are easy to find, easy to work with, and they taste delicious!

Summer Fruit Salad

(printable recipe at end of page)

1/2 cup Heavy Duty Whipping Cream

1 tablespoon Granulated Sugar

1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Flavoring









Light Vanilla Yoplait Yogurt

Sweet Hawaiian Mini Flour Tortillas

Choose any fruit you want to use. More colorful fruit will make the plate prettier and more appetizing.

Pour the heavy whipping cream into a medium sized bowl. Add the sugar and vanilla.
Mix together on medium until the cream thickens and becomes whipped cream.

Wash all of the fruit before cutting it. When cutting the fruit, the important thing to remember is to make it easy to eat. One way to do that is to cut it in small bite sized pieces. You can see that the strawberries and the blueberries were not cut, but you could cut the stems off the strawberries if you wanted to.

One of the small bowls contains the whipped cream and the other one has light vanilla yogurt in it. I also included a few mini tortillas, which are the perfect addition to this plate! They can be filled with your favorite fruit and topped with a bit of whipped cream or fill them with a little bit of each fruit and add a spoonful of yogurt for a fun and tasty treat! They are a favorite for kids!

There you have it! Simple, tasty and good for you!
