Baptism Brunch

I was honored to be asked to be the Godmother to my new baby nephew this month. Today was his baptism and then afterwards we all came together at my Mom's house for a little get together. I made my pal G's awesome bacon potato salad and I made the simplest fruit salad in the world.

1 pt. Strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 green apple, sliced and chopped
1 bunch red grapes, rinsed
1/2 cantaloupe, peeled and chopped
1/4 pineapple, peeled and chopped
1 key lime, juiced

I mixed all of these fruits together and refrigerated them while we were at church. When we got back I poured them into a pretty serving bowl. Evertything, including the cut apples, stayed crisp and no browning or mushiness.

Good fruit salad simply uses the best available seasonal fruits and some lime or lemon juice to keep things bright and tasty. Enjoy it this summer!


  1. This sounds delicious. That's great that the apples didn't get brown. I always love a fresh fruit salad.

  2. Me too, also if you can add in anything really watery or really soft like watermelons or banana RIGHT before you serve it. That helps immensely!
