A Summer Fruit Salad

If anyone were to look at this marvelous bowl of colors, I would think that all of their worries would suddenly disappear out the window. I say this because, having made this myself, I was immediately feeling happy. The citrus rush of diced fresh oranges and plump mountain fresh blueberries go well with the tangy strawberries and crisp green grapes. The creamy bananas adds a nice element to a fruit salad that is tossed in a lemon-infused syrup that is lightly sweetened with golden clover honey. This salad is perfect for anyone, really, it's even a gratifying recipe for the waste-averse.

This salad is enough to make me blush. :)

2 bananas (cut into 1/2 inch thickness)
1 orange (peeled and diced into small chunks)
1/2 lemon (for juice)
1 pint fresh blueberries
1 pint fresh strawberries
1 bunch green grapes (cut in half)
1 tablespoon clover honey

In a large bowl, add all of the fruit. Squeeze the juice from half of a fresh lemon over the fruit and then add honey. Mix well.

Feel free to substitute whatever fruit you want or have on hand. Do not add the bananas until you're ready to serve because they can get mushy and turn brown.
