WHY have I waited this long to make a fruit salad this summer? Sometimes I’m really late to the game. And sometimes is like, all the time.

This salad is my life right now. The colors, the flavors, and the freshness, sweet sweet summertime goodness…

Sigh.

I want to kick myself silly every time I have to admit it, but up until a week ago I was having cereal for breakfast every morning. Yes. I repeat cereal. Meanwhile the juiciest fruit of the year is overflowing at farmer’s markets everywhere.

One thing about summer is that it’s hot. Like the air is heavy hot. So when at all possible, the oven is a no-go. This is real life. Bowls of cereal to avoid adding to the already to hot temperature with our oven. But after countless trips to the farmer’s markets passing by all the glorious summer fruit on my way to restock on microgreens and tomatos plus a stop by our favorite food truck for breakfast – I finally realized how silly this situation was.

Fresh fruit salad breakfasts all the way. Nothing compares to a big (and I mean big) fruit salad on a hot and humid summer morning.

I decided it was finally time to share my secret to the perfect fruit salad. Well, if we are being technical, I would call it a formula.

Fresh fruit of choice + powdered sugar + vanilla extract = the perfect fruit salad bursting with bright flavor

Oh my gosh you guy. Why did I wait this long to take advantage of summer produce?

Don’t be like the old me, be like the new me and go get some fruit so we can be fruit salad twins. Bonus: this is totally an Instagram worthy breakfast, am I right??
