Some days, it’s just too hot to cook. When I just want something quick, cool and easy to feed my hunger, fruit salad is perfect. I make a big batch on the weekend and for the next few days, I’m set. I don’t know if this is so much counts as a “recipe” or if it’s more of a method, either way, I’m sharing it with you. As with most of my cooking, this recipe/method can be modified to fit your tastes. Enjoy!
