The smaller the pieces, the more likely they will be to break apart when you try to pick them up with your hands. I like to use my melon baller for this job because it gives me control over how much of each piece I get out of each slice of fruit, but if you don’t have one and want something even quicker and easier than cutting slices yourself (or if you’re just not all that great at it), then go ahead and use that sharp knife!

Sprinkle with mint, if desired. Serve immediately or chilled.

To make the salad even more refreshing and flavorful, add mint. Mint is a great addition to any fruit salad because it adds a refreshing taste that complements the sweet fruits.

Mint is an excellent choice for summertime salads because it adds color and texture in addition to its flavor.

Takeaway:

Fruit salad is a great summertime treat, and it’s also one of the best ways to use up fruit that’s about to go bad. If you have extra fruit in your fridge, make this easy recipe for a quick, healthy snack or dessert.

The whole family will love this simple fruit salad made with fresh strawberries and blueberries—and even better than that: It can be made ahead of time! Just add it to the refrigerator when you want it ready later on during the week or weekend. This makes it perfect as an after-school snack or breakfast cereal because kids who don’t like vegetables may eat them happily by themselves if they know they can always get more later on in their day (or week).
