Summer Fruit Salad

Now that melons and berries are in season, I enjoy preparing fruit bowls for my family
to enjoy as a healthy snack or as a side for lunch or dinner.  Having fruit washed, cut
and ready to eat makes it so much easier to make healthy choices.  I would rather have
this pretty bowl of summer fruit salad for a snack than a bag of chips or crackers!

I love OXO Good Grips Glass Snap Containers for keeping cut fruit and vegetables fresh,
ready to eat and easily transportable.  They come in a variety of sizes from 1 cup to 7 cup
and are perfect for salads, leftovers and side dishes.  The snap lids are leak proof, so I
can carry them in my lunch bag to work and not worry about liquid leaking out all over
the place! They go from freezer to the oven with no problem at all!

























We have had the best luck with melons so far this summer.  I don't know the trick to picking
a good watermelon, but we have been lucky! They have been perfectly ripe and super
sweet.  I have been buying a watermelon from Costco every week!  I love summer!!

I serve my summer fruit salad with these handy 2-in-1 salad servers.
The OXO 2-in-1 Salad Servers snap together to make tongs or separate for tossing.
They are durable and stain resistant too! Perfect for tossing vegetables or fruit.

The OXO 1-cup and 2-cup snap containers are convenient for the kids to grab and go.
I keep them filled with baby carrots, sliced cucumbers, berries and homemade trail mix.

If you like they way I cut the kiwi, check out this video to see how I did it.  They are
almost too pretty to eat!
