My fruit salad starts with apples, blueberries, plums, grapes, and strawberries. I bought Gala apples, but any apples are great for this fruit salad. Pick the apples you like best. There are many different apples to choose from, all with different levels of sweetness. Honeycrisp and Pink Lady apples are among the sweetest ones. There is no sugar in this recipe, so if you like sweetness, choose the sweeter variety of apples. I used fresh blueberries and strawberries in this recipe, but frozen berries are just fine to use, and they thaw well, so they weren't much different than their fresh counterparts; they were just a bit colder as they were thawing out, but they held their shape and didn't lose their juice too much. Preparing this salad is quick, as all the fruit just needs a good rinse if it's fresh. I did slice the strawberries and plums in addition to the apples.
Start rinsing all the fruit( if you're using frozen berries, then you can skip this step for those). Slice the apples into medium-sized slices and add them to the bowl. Drizzle it with lemon juice to keep it from browning. Slice the strawberries into halves and the plums into chunk-size pieces. Combine all the fruit into a bowl or even mini tasting bowls, which are perfect for parties. Enjoy this fruit salad as a healthy way to curb those sweet cravings that can crop up during the day.
