Easy Side Fruit Salad

The fruit is fresh and the basil is growing beautifully.  Finding different ways to combine these tasty treasures is fun.


4 peaches – sliced
2 oranges – sliced
1 pint blueberries
1 cup grapes – halved
¼ cup fresh basil - ripped


¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
2-3 tablespoons Honey

Combine all of the fruit and basil in a bowl. 

Combine the ingredients for the dressing; mix and pour in the bowl.

Enjoy with Love,



  1. So good and so wonderful when it's hot out. I had some the other night that had yogurt in it and it was fabulous.

    Have a terrific day Catherine. Big hugs. ☺

  2. I've only recently discovered the goodness of fruit and basil and I truly enjoy it, Catherine.

    Thank you so much for sharing...

  3. Oh my gosh that looks amazing Catherine! It is soooo hot here in Georgia! We live on fruit salad days but I never thought to put basil in mine. I'm not a huge fan of honey but Hubby is. Our nectarines have been so incredibly sweet I'm not sure I'd need a dressing but wow your fruit salad looks so inviting! You can cook for me anytime! You make me homesick for Long Island!
