Food Friday - Ken's Fruit Salad

Ken's Fruit Salad
adapted from . . .the family

One of my brother's developed an allergy to certain type's of fruit several years ago (Apples, pears, melons, ect) which made us get creative with fruit salad at family gatherings.  This version has become a family favorite and I often take it to gatherings.  I will admit that it is a more pricey salad due to the fruit used but it is well worth it - especially when the fruit is in season :-) Right now, I almost always have a bowl of this in the fridge - my kids like to pick out their favorite fruits!


1 jar (or 2 cans) of Manderian oranges with juice
1 pint of blueberries
1 sm carton blackberries
1 sm carton raspberries
1 carton of straberries

Wash all of the fruit.  Slice the strawberries in half or quarters.  About 1 hour before serving, add the oranges with the juice and stir.  (the juice helps blend all of the flavors.)

The salad does last several days but for serving fresh the first time, the oranges should be added within an hour of serving (other wise some fruits like the raspberries and strawberries may start to get soft).
