One of my best girls in the world had surgery yesterday, and her only request from me was this fruit salad. Jess said that it was the key to her sanity and healing after her C-section about a year ago. She’s not one to really ask for help, but during that time, she actually asked me to whip up a second batch to get her through her 3:00 am feedings. Apparently, there’s some kind of super love that is transferable from my hands to this fruit to her sore body. I am thrilled that I can provide support in this very nourishing way. Maybe you have a friend or family member who needs that kind of love too. Here’s the recipe:
In a large bowl, combine…
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped into bite-sized chunks
1/2 cantaloupe, flesh removed from the rind and chopped into bite-sized chunks
1 pint organic blueberries, rinsed and drained
2 pints organic strawberries, tops removed, cut into little pieces
2 organic Granny Smith apples, cut into 1/2 inch chunks. Squeeze the juice of a lemon over the apples and toss to coat before adding them to your bowl.
1 orange, juiced over the fruit bowl
Simply toss gently with a large spoon and serve it up!
Hope this bowl full of cold, juicy goodness will make someone you love smile.
Happy cooking and eating to you,
