Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

From allrecipes.com  By Nicole Graham Holley

I made this recipe over July 4th. It was cold, refreshing & the sauce is wonderful.

You could easily take this recipe & make an activity out of it. Have residents help with cutting the fruit & placing it in the bowl. The AD can do the cooking.

Make this in the am. Place in refrigerator & then in the afternoon gather residents up to eat. This should be in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.



2/3 C fresh orange juice

1/3 C fresh lemon juice

1/3 C packed brown sugar

½ tsp grated orange zest

½ tsp grated lemon zest

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 C cubed fresh pineapple

2 C strawberries, hulled & sliced

3 kiwi fruit, peeled & sliced

3 bananas, sliced

2 oranges, peeled & sectioned

1 C seedless grapes

2 C blueberries



Bring orange juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, orange & lemon zest to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, simmer until slightly thicken about 5 mins. Remove from heat stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool

In a clear glass bowl, just for looks, place all the fruit into the bowl. Pour the sauce over all the fruit. Then gently mix all the fruit & sauce together. Cover & place in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours.

You can use any fruit, peaches, melon etc.
