Easy Homemade Fruit Salad Recipe

Over the weekend I decided to throw together a fruit salad with what I had on hand and I must say...it came out delicious! This recipe uses canned fruits along with some fresh fruits.


1 large can of fruit cocktail with juice
1/2 of a small watermelon
3 bananas, sliced
2 peaches, chopped (skins removed)
2 cups of chopped cantaloupe
1 kiwi, chopped

I took 1 cup of chopped watermelon and ran it through my blender to make watermelon juice. I then drained the juice from the canned fruit cocktail into a bowl and added the watermelon juice to that to make my own syrup. The remainder of the watermelon (about 2 cups of chunks) got stirred into the syrup along with the fruit cocktail, sliced bananas, chopped peaches, chopped cantaloupe and the kiwi. I then refrigerated it for 2 hours in my Tupperware bowl.

You can basically throw together any canned or fresh fruits that you have. What I liked about this recipe was that I made my own syrup (juice) by blending down some fresh watermelon.
