I love a fresh fruit salad. When fresh fruit is sitting in the fridge it's easy to forget to use it before it spoils. I think my family is more likely to snack on fruits and veges that have been prepared in advance. As the warm spring weather approaches, it's a great way to enjoy fresh seasonal fruit. There is a little preparation involved, about 30 minutes to cut and prepare the fresh fruit. As pictured this fruit salad has approximately 184 calories.
