What do I need to make this recipe?
Grapefruit. This fruit is a great source of Vitamins A and C. Remember when our grandparents would always tell us to eat grapefruits and we’d turn our noses on it? Well, there was a reason they were chowing down on a grapefruit every morning. It’s a low calorie fruit that boosts immunity and aids in reducing blood sugar levels.
Pineapple. Yup, you’re getting even more Vitamin C and A, plus iron and calcium!
Strawberries and Blueberries. These delicious, bright-colored berries are packed with antioxidants! These potent little berries help protect the heart while lowering blood pressure levels.
Orange juice! What better to use as a dressing base than the juice of a fruit itself? Orange juice provides your body with vitamin C and improves heart health!
Vanilla extract: There are no artificial sweeteners in this fruit salad. I’ve added a dash of vanilla extract for a delicious, vanilla flavor. This helps sweeten and round out all the flavors from the fruits.
I love making this fruit salad in the summer! It’s the perfect pick-me-up. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
