    Very Easy Fruit Salad (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Summertime is fruit time, and fruit means delicious fruit salads. Few fresh dishes are easier to make or more pleasing to the eye than fruit salads. They're high in fiber, low in fat, and packed with vitamins. This particular recipe makes an easy base to which you can add or subtract fruits to your liking.

    Ingredients:
    1 pint strawberries - cleaned, hulled and sliced
    1/2 pint of blueberries
    1/2 pint of blackberries
    1 pound seedless grapes, halved
    3 kiwis, peeled and sliced
    3 bananas, sliced
    1 (21 ounce) can peach pie filling
    1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, juice reserved

    Directions:
    In a large bowl, combine the berries, grapes, kiwis. Gently mix in peaches. Add sliced bananas to reserved pineapple juice and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove bananas from pineapple juice and add fold into fruit salad.

    Chill for 1 hour before serving.

    Regarding the "Very Easy Fruit Salad," I'd say skip the peach pie filling which I think made the whole salad taste like canned fruit cocktail. I took it to my daughter's house for lunch (she and her kids have celiac) and was seriously disappointed with the results. Keep the fruit plain and simple; or add a tad of sugar.
