Its been a busy few weeks around our house. When it was time to make a last minute side dish to take along with us to a gathering I found myself in a pinch. No time to run to the grocery store, missing ingredients for some of my go-to sides…staring in my fridge I saw a bunch of fresh fruit. Yes, I can make a fruit salad!
Chop up a variety of fresh fruit and toss in some simple poppy seed dressing. Perfect! You can use a store bought poppy seed dressing (I like the Brianna brand) or make one of your own, like this one below from the blog Mom Needs To Know.
- 4 cups fresh chopped fruit (peaches, grapes, apples and strawmberries are a great combo)
- ¼ cup creamy poppy seed dressing of choice (more as desired)
- Toss chopped fruit and poppy seed dressing until evenly coated.
- Store in airtight container in fridge until ready to serve
Another all time favorite fruit salad recipe (there is a secret ingredient) is this one of Denise’s…a request for every party!
