This Easy Summer Fruit Salad is delightfully different from your ordinary fruit salad. Sweet melon, refreshing cucumber and crisp apple combine with lime and mint for a taste sensation that makes a great side dish or a snack anytime of the day!
This salad, an idea borrowed from a WW member at my last meeting, is an interesting blend of summer flavors. For all intents and purposes, it is a completely zero point food. It's a healthy and delicious choice!
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of the cucumber in this salad, but it works really well! I love cucumber, so it didn't surprise me that I liked it in here!
While apples are not technically "summer fruits" they do work well in this salad. I think you could substitute fresh pineapple, if you like though. I think pineapple is another flavor that would make this salad unique. Whether you use apples or pineapples, this salad is one you've just got to give a try! It's so refreshing!

After such an incredibly harsh winter and an equally miserable, cold and wet spring, we have finally had some amazing weather this past week, and I have taken every minute to take advantage of it!! I finished planting all my herbs....basil, thyme, rosemary, flat leaf parsley, ( chives and oregano were already in the ground from previous years). I also put in three tomato plants ( one grape, one big boy and one heirloom) and four pepper plants...two jalapeno and two sweet red. I put in all my annual flowers, which ended up being purple petunias this year!
I made good on attending my WW meeting this past week as well...got several outdoor walks in, and was rewarded by a small loss on the scale this week.
