Fruit Salad

It's summer time here and I see a huge variety of fruits at the grocers. So, I buy one of each variety and treat myself to this simple yet tasty fruit salad :-).

Ingredients:

Fruits of your choice cut into bite sized pieces (be sure to include dates) - 2 to 3 cups (using a measuring cup) in total
Honey - about 2 to 3 tablespoons (vary this to suit your taste)
Vanilla extract (optional) - a couple of drops

Procedure:

1. Mix the cut fruits and honey in a bowl, chill and serve. I add honey so that even the fruits that are slightly sour by nature blend well with the others.

At times, when I don't care much about calories, I top the fruit salad with a scoop of store bought ice cream of my choice :-). How easy a dessert is it????!!!!

Ur fruit salad looks delicious. Reminds me of all the good fruits we had this summer. I usually add flavored yogurt and cardamon pwd to my fruit salad. Will surely try honey next time.
