Strawberry and Blueberry Salad

This is a pretty idiot-proof recipe. It's a simple strawberry and blueberry fruit salad. Of course you can add or subtract any fruits you like but personally I HATE when there are 100 different types of fruit in a salad. The colors start to melt all over each other and some of the flavors just clash. For instance, pineapple is such a strong, tangy flavor and just overpowers cantaloupe and causes a fight with my taste buds. Therefore, I think two or three fruits in a fruit salad is just enough (it also depends on what is in season and what you can find fresh). Today we had strawberries and blueberries and they were simple and delightful. The flavors get along well and it's actually really pretty. Like I said before, fresh and whatever is in season is your best choice so choose accordingly. Also, I like the fruit to be chopped. When you're at a party, do you really want to sit and concentrate on cutting your fruit into bites? I think not. Slice the larger pieces of fruit, toss lightly, and always serve in a large white bowl.

What you'll need:
2 cups fresh strawberries
1 pint fresh blueberries

1. Rinse your fruit right before you're going to cut and serve (any earlier could cause them to get moldy and soggy. Ewww!!!).
2. Slice the tops of the strawberries off then down the middle, lengthwise. 
3. Add both fruits into a large white bowl and toss together. Keep one of the green tops of the strawberries for a little bit of color and place in the middle of the bowl. Time to serve!

enjoy :)
