Lacrosse season has kicked off, it’s finally starting to warm up and the produce aisle at the grocery store is beginning to look much more colorful. All signs that spring is on its way. Phew.
With a new season upon us, I wanted to take the opportunity to share one of my favorite spring recipes. Of course, I stole this from a friend, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable.
- 1 Golden Delicious apple – peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 carton of strawberries, diced
- 1 carton of blueberries
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 1tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp fruit preserves – I like to use raspberry
It’s easy. Simply wash and cut all fruit as instructed, toss with the other ingredients and serve. Quick, delicious and best of all, it makes my kids happy. The only problem is how quickly it disappears. With the three men in my life, I give it five minutes, tops.
The boys love to eat their fruit salsa with cinnamon chips for extra crunch (and sugar). For the gluten-free lady in the family (i.e. me) it’s also great on a gluten free bagel or with Nut Thins.
