No matter the season, fresh fruit is always on my shopping list. On this particular day, I had decided to make a vegan salad with different types of fruit. I was not exactly sure which types of fruit I was going to include (except strawberries), so I wandered around the store looking for ideas. As my daughter and I were walking through Whole Foods, I grabbed a bottle of lime juice because I was going to make my own dressing for the vegan salad recipe...but then I stopped at one of the sample tables. After I had sampled the blackberry vinaigrette and salad toppers by Aunt Dottie, I knew exactly what I was going to include in my salad: kale, blueberries, mango, strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, blackberry vinaigrette dressing, and the coconut salad toppers (my daughter really liked the sample).
I put my lime juice back, and decided to use the dressing I had sampled instead, and it was the perfect compliment to the vegan fruit salad. I call this a SUPER fruit salad because the combination of ingredients are indeed superfoods that do the following: fight cancer, improve heart health, lower blood pressure, aid in weight loss, regulate diabetes, improve eye and skin health, improve digestion, and much, much, more!
Wholesome, Fruity, Sweet, Tangy, Nutty, Light, and only eight ingredients!
