Apple Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Salad: A Sweet Summer Treat

June 8, 2015

Strawberries and Apples
The perfect addition to any summer picnic, this fruit salad is simple to make and great to enjoy on a hot summer day. It is one of my favorites for this time of year at the Historic Smithton Inn.

You’ll notice some interesting ingredients below. I add orange juice to keep the apples from turning brown, and I use brown sugar and strawberry jam to give the salad a unique, sweet touch without overwhelming the fruits.

Apple Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Salad

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 to 3 firm, tart apples (I typically use Fuji apples)
  • 2 to 3 kiwis
  • 2 c. strawberries (hulled)
  • ¼ c. orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. strawberry jam

How To Make It:

  1. Peel and core the apples. Cut all fruit into bite-sized pieces and put the pieces in a medium bowl.
  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the orange juice, brown sugar, and strawberry jam.
  3. Pour the mixture over the medium bowl of fruit and gently toss to coat.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Bring this healthful treat to a cookout or enjoy it with your kids during lunch. No matter where you serve it, this recipe is sure win accolades from your family and friends.
