With the sun shining and a pinch, note just a pinch of warmer weather hitting, I have been craving fruit! I am actually craving it! All night I was laying in bed thinking of a glorious fruit salad! I couldn’t wait for morning to hit so I could have my salad with my eggs. This fruit salad is so sweet and to make it even sweeter I added a pinch of honey! I love Mother Nature!
This salad is made with mangoes, pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, a mandarin orange, kiwi and topped with pomegranate arils. To keep the color fresh, I added a pinch of fresh lime juice. I am loving this salad and it’s so simple and I think just beautiful!
My Husband sat at his spot at the breakfast table and he saw the salad and said is this for you! I told him nope, your eating it! Ha ha!! He wasn’t to thrilled about it, but then he told me he really enjoyed the salad except for the pomegranate arils. He picked those out. Personally I love them and they add a nice little crunch to the salad. I wanted to give my Husband a little bit of healthiness to his meals. He doesn’t really eat to healthy and to show him I care, I made him the salad. So glad he ate it! I do have to tell you I picked up some mandarin oranges from Trader Joe’s and wow are they sweet and delicious! They are the ones with the leaves still on the stem. They were the best mandarin oranges I ever had!!
