The Undeniable Benefits Of Fruit Salad

Fruit salad is super quick and simple to put together. Make them with your favorite fruits. Here I have two of the fruits that I love — Bon appetite.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of cut strawberry
  • 2 cups of freshly cut watermelon
  • ¼ cup of black olives or less (optional)

Instructions

  1. Wash and cut all fruits. I usually like washing strawberry with some salt. Then in a clean bowl arrange or layer them as you wish. Finish up with black olives or any other topping (this is optional); I enjoy the saltiness of the olives. It goes a long way to compliment the sweetness of the strawberry and watermelon. YUM. Enjoy.
