Happiness Is A Big Bowl of Fruit Salad!

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


We eat fruit year round, but when summer hits, our consumption of it goes way up. We use it in more smoothies, more baking, and fresh off the limbs it grows on. Honestly, is there anything more delicious than a big bowl of cold fruit on a hot summer day? I don't think so! When I put a bowl out on the table, it never makes it more than an hour before the family has already picked it clean. With the abundance of options to choose from, your fruit bowls never get boring because you can always toss in a new thing and voila. New flavor combination. For an extra boost of sweet flavor, I like to drizzle honey over fruit, but with this Golden Blossom Honey recipe for Fruit Salad, you add in a few more spices and your bowl goes from wow, to kapow!

The honey adds in extra natural sweetness and the spices give this recipe an awesome boost of flavor. This is a great dish to bring to summer cookouts, picnics, potlucks, or to eat all by yourself binge watching Netflix on a rainy summer day.

  1. Those round plums really look lovely and juicy! We don't have those in the shops, just the regular blue ones, but we had a tree in the old house.
    My raspberries will have a very poor yield this year, methinks, I've picked up a small cup today and don't think there will be much more. I'm gutted since last year they lasted for at least two or three weeks.

    1. Mariah doesn't like the ones I bought here, opting for eat the midnight ones instead where the centers are a deep purple hue. I'll eat them any way they come though!
      That's terrible about your raspberries :(How old is your bush?

    2. not old, about five years. Raspberries sometimes half weak years like that :( We also have a tree of those dark red cherry/plums with dark red leaves on the tree, those are very interesting as well. I'd like to see you make something with mirabelle plums, those are very decorative :)

  2. Berries sure are a win. Although fruit tends to screw with me, not in a fun way either lol

  3. Yum! Love a big bowl of fruit salad!! Great dish to have on hot, summer days. I have to start avoiding really big, heavy, fatty meals - so I'll need to make some of this up soon. Having gallbladder surgery tomorrow (FUN!!!) Maybe I'll have some of this while I'm recovering. Yes!

    1. Good luck with your surgery! I had mine out 13 years ago. Thankfully, the recovery wasn't horrible. I hope yours is smooth!

  5. I can agree with you on the big fruit salad! I just brought one to my last family gathering. I put in strawberries I picked, mulberries at work that I picked, blueberries, kiwi, nectarine and banana. Most of it was gone by the end. What little was left I put in small baggies for the freezer for smoothies. The banana tends to get mushy for eating the next day.

  7. I disagree. I think happiness is a big bowl of fruit salad where the fruit is ALSO the bowl. Genius!
