Recipe Wednesday: Summer Fruit Salad!

I don't know about all of you but Texas Summers just suck. I cannot stand Texas heat, I love cold. So when I wanted a fruit salad, this was the perfect one to make!! Although this calls for bananas due to my stomach I can't eat them, but you can make sure to add them to yours!



  •  cup fresh orange juice
     cup fresh lemon juice
     cup packed brown sugar
    ½ teaspoon grated orange zest
    ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
    2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
    3 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
    3 bananas, sliced
    2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
    1 cup seedless grapes 
    2 cups blueberries


  • For the sauce: Bring orange juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, orange zest, and lemon zest to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.
  • For the salad: Layer fruit in a large, clear glass bowl in this order: pineapple, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bananas, oranges, grapes, and blueberries. Pour cooled sauce over fruit; cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
