fruit salad


A sure fire way to help your kids reach their five a day. A fruit salad makes a healthy breakfast, lunch, or dessert, they are super easy to make, and almost limitless in variation.

A fruit salad is a good way to get your children eating fruit they might not otherwise try. If it is sitting in a fruit bowl, and apple may not look so interesting, but throw it together with other colourful friends, and suddenly it becomes a lot more attractive.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: N/A
Makes: 1 large bowl

Ingredients
2 clementines

Any other mandarin species is fine too, but I think clementines are best for children for several reasons. Unlike tangerines and oranges, clementines are seedless, easy to peel, and have less pith/skin.

2 handfuls of blueberries
15 mixed red and white grapes
1 apple

I use granny smiths because they a sharper, and contrast the sweeter fruits.

2 kiwifruit
6 lychees
1 nectarine
450g tinned pineapple in juice

You could use a fresh pineapple, but then you will need additional fruit juice. Also, if the kids are helping out, it is best to avoid something that is tricky to cut into.

Method



Peel the clementines, separate the segments, and remove any pith.

Put into a large bowl along with the blueberries.

Chop the grapes in half, slice the nectarine, and add them to the bowl.



Core the apple, chop into small slices, and add to the bowl.



Peel the kiwifruit, slice, and add to the bowl.



Peel the lychees then tear the flesh from the stone, and add to the bowl.



Pour in the tinned pineapple along with the juice.



Using a large serving spoon, mix all the fruit up in the bowl.

For variations you could swap the blueberries for cherries, the nectarine for peaches, mango instead of kiwifruit, or the tinned pineapple with tinned apricots. One fruit I would not recommend using are bananas, as they will go mushy when mixed with the juices.
