Pina Colada Fruit Salad
I can’t think of anything more summery and tropical-tasting than fresh fruit that’s tossed in pineapple juice and pina colada mix.
Make this as a way to kick off summer with Memorial Day and Fourth of July coming up.
The fruit salad is non-alcoholic and gets its pina colada name from you guessed it – pina colada mix, sans alcohol. Although you could spike it with rum for an adults-only crowd. That would be fun.
I added coconut and almond extracts for an extra boost of tropical flavors.
The fruit salad perfect for parties, potlucks, or as a way to take advantage of all the fruit you accidentally overbought at the farmers market when your eyes were bigger than your stomach. Everything looks so good in the summer.
While I used strawberries, two kinds of grapes, blueberries, and pineapple, the recipe will work with anything from peaches, nectarines, kiwi, raspberries, to blackberries.
You can mix and match the quantities of the fruit based on what you have on hand and enjoy most. It’s a very flexible recipe that everyone loves.
