Fresh Wholesome Fruits in a Fruit Salad
Fruit salads are composed of fresh wholesome fruits. These fruits are just what the body needs to get its daily antioxidants. It is quick, easy to prepare, and require no cooking. Best of all fruit salads can be low in cholesterol and calories. Also, fruit salads are filling to the point I think less of eating fried fattening commercial snacks. So it is perfect for those trying to lose weight.
I know my (fruit) salad is not entirely tropical with the grapes and all, but I kind of settled for what was available at the fruit stall not far from my home. This is also, the reason I ended up buying a tin of pineapple in a light syrup. I bought a large Julie mango, but when I got home I noticed that the fruit stall vendor had forgotten to pack my mango in the bag. You could only imagine my disappointment. Nevertheless, I still had enough fruits to call it a “fruit salad”.
In the end the fruit salad was tasty and quite filling. Though, it would have been much better if it really had that Julie mango)! Enjoy a tasty Fruit Salad.
