I’m celebrating summer with this gorgeous fruit salad today.
It’s drizzled with a light honey-orange sauce, which makes it completely irresistible, so much so that it tastes like dessert. So simple to make, and you can use any fruits you like: apples, pears, berries, grapes, melons – the works!
I chose berries, small and sweet mandarin oranges, and a dash of green grapes for a little more sweetness. I love how everything in this salad ends up about the same size, which makes it just right for savoring every bite.
It’s absolutely perfect: for brunch, for celebrating a special occasion, for a snack, dessert, or just for a random Thursday when you feel like a little bit of light bright fun in your life. And 95% of the sugar in this recipe comes from the natural sweetness of the fruit, so you can enjoy this without worrying about eating too much sugar or breaking your diet!
Each serving is only about 100 calories, and it’s vegetarian and gluten-free.
