Summer Fruit Salad

Super easy, fast and yummy! This fruit salad has been updated from the fruit salads I remember as a child  to be a little healthier and easy. The only complaint I have about this salad is that it never lasts long enough! Perfect for picnics and last minute potlucks.

Easy recipe. Short prep time. Vegetarian. Vegan. 
Easy Summer Fruit Salad

  • 1 can mixed fruit – drained well (in light syrup or juice)
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple – drained well (in natural juice)
  • 1 small can Mandarin oranges  (optional) – well drained 
  • 1/2 – 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • So Delicious CocoWhip – I don’t usually recommend brands but this is the best for this recipe I have found. No I’m not being paid for the recommendation. 
  • About 1 cup- Vegan mini marshmallows (optional)
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces (optional)
  1. Drain all fruit very well then mix together in a bowl. (If the fruit is not drained well your salad will be watery). 
  2. Add unsweetened coconut to taste. 
  3. Add vegan marshmallows to taste.
  4. Add pecan pieces.
  5. Mix CocoWhip until the mixture is  well coated. 
  6. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 

I recommend making a double batch if you plan on taking this to a potluck or party. It goes fast!

Have a Daisy May Day!
