Make a Fruit Salad With Seasonal Spring Fruits

Use Seasonal Fruits to Make This Springtastic Salad

fruit salad The next time you walk into a grocery store or visit your local farmers market, take a look around and hopefully you'll not only see but also smell the delicious aroma coming from a strawberry stand. For some strange reason — probably because I love them so — strawberries push me out of my cooking comfort zone by inspiring me to make such things like jams, pies, and even homemade ice cream.

Fortunately, berries are in season right now, making them widely available across the country. Strawberries also provide a multitude of health benefits, so you can eat 'em till your heart's content. What else is in season? Rhubarb, cherries, navel oranges, and watermelon. To put all of these tasty fruits to good use this Spring, here's a fruit salad recipe that surely won't disappoint!

Here's the full recipe.
