Feel like wanting to beat that heat? A quick fix is to enjoy a bowl of my frozen fruit salad. It’s a simple recipe, merely throwing things together in a large bowl. And when you are ready to serve, just take the container out of the freezer for some 30 minutes and scoop softened fruit salad to individual cups or salad bowls, and enjoy!
