A Simple Red Fruit Salad for the Summer

There is just something about a fresh fruit salad in the middle of the summer that always seems to hit the spot. They're juicy and sweet and refreshing and I love how just switching out a few fruits here and there each time make the salads so totally different!

This week we had lots of red fruits lying around so I decided to throw together a red fruit salad.




I used:
Watermelon
Cherries
Red Grapes
Strawberries

I love the mixing tastes of the fruit so I chose not to put any sort of syrup or juice in it.  I began with the cherries, cutting the fruit in half and pulling out the pits. Once I covered the bottom of the bowl I moved onto the next fruit.



I diced the watermelon into bite sized pieces and added another layer to the bowl.



I washed off the red grapes and chose to leave them whole but I could have halved them (and would have if we had any young kids in our family).  After adding another layer I then halved some fresh picked strawberries to top it all off.




Before serving I made sure to mix it all up!  I just love all those shades of red together and the flavors just burst in our mouths.




What's your favorite fruit salad combination?

  1. I have one child who loves cherries and another who loves watermelon, so they'd both enjoy this!

    1. That's how my boys are and they've started picking the fruit they enjoy off of each other's plates.

    1. You know I really am not much of a fruit person beyond strawberries, pineapple and fresh picked apples in the fall but I do find that if I make it as a salad I just LOVE it. All those flavors are so sweet and loaded with juices.
