Tropical Fruit Salad

I don't know about you, but I love a nice fruit salad!  Not those skimpy versions you get from the restaurant when you order a side of fruit instead of your french fries, but a nice, hearty, sweet, colorful fruit salad.  Yummm... My mouth is watering just thinking about it! [hahaha]  Since I gave up fruit drinks and sodas, and basically any other liquid aside from water and tea, I thought making a fruit salad would help curb my cravings for juice.  Feel free to add your own variety of fruits to the salad.  The possibilities for this are truly endless.  Next week I plan to switch it up a bit - to keep me on my toes ;-)

(Original Recipe) / Serves 5

Ingredients: 
  • 1 small carton Strawberries, quartered
  • 1 1/2 cup Seedless Red Table Grapes
  • 3 medium rings of whole Pineapple, diced
  • 1 Mango, diced

Directions:
  1. Wash all of your fruit with Fruit/Vegetable Wash prior to cutting.
  2. Cut the stems off the Strawberries and slice them into fours.
  3. Remove the skin from the Mango, and slice around the large seed - then dice.
  4. Chop the stem off the Pineapple, cut 3 medium-sized slices (about 1-1/2 inches), remove the skin (and core), and dice into smaller pieces.
  5. Add all ingredients into a large bowl (including juice from sliced pineapple), and mix until well coated.
  6. Serve cold (or store in a mason jar or divide into smaller containers for later use)
