If you want something that will be consistently devoured by your family, you’ve come to the right place. I make a large batch of this fresh fruit salad for every family gathering and it’s a hit each time. Who would love juicy pineapple, crisp apples, and crunchy sweet grapes?
Although a 3 ingredient fresh fruit salad is quick and easy, you don’t want to skip out on my tips.
First, wash your grapes and apples! And by washing, I don’t mean rinsing with water. Scrub those babies! Here’s a post on washing vegetables where you can see the difference between washed and rinsed grapes.
I’ve used a few vegetable washes in my day. I keep coming back to Fit Fruit & Vegetable Wash. Big BIG fan!
For grapes, I pluck them and place them in a large bowl. I pour a cap full of Fit Fruit & Vegetable Wash over the grapes and fill the bowl with cool water until all the grapes are covered. Let them sit for about 3 to 5 minutes and use your hands to gently scrub the grapes while still in the water in a circular motion. Drain and rinse with water.
For apples, spray each apple 2 to 3 times with wash. Scrub the apples with your hands for about 15 to 20 seconds. While rinsing under cool water, scrub the apple with your hands until you feel the residue wash off. You’ll oooh and aaah over how great they feel!
After you finish cutting your fresh pineapple into chunks, don’t throw away the rind just yet! Those crisp delicious apples need the juice from the rind in order to prevent them from turning brown.
Once you combine the grapes, apples, and pineapple chunks in your large bowl, take a spoon and scrape the inside of the rind to express the excess juice over your fruit. Stir your salad well and coat your apples with the fresh pineapple juice. This will prevent your apples from browning.
You can keep this salad refrigerated up to two weeks. Mine has never lasted that long because it’s in our bellies LONG before then. BUT thanks to the citrus of the pineapple, this salad will stay fresh for you. Now go and devour!
