Fruit Salad

Sometimes when I have a lot of different fruit in my fridge and either they are on their way to going bad, or it's just too much, I make a fruit salad!  Yes, fruit salads are easy, tasty, and perfect for a quick fruit-filled breakfast, snack, or dessert!  All you need to do is cut up whatever fresh fruit you have at home and sprinkle some sugar or splenda along with some OJ, or any citrus you have. That's it!

Fruit Salad (serves 1)
2 cups cut up fruit, whatever you have on hand
Sweetener, as much or as little as you need (sugar, Splenda, honey, or agave)
1/4 cup citrus juice

Place the cut up fruit in a bowl.  Sprinkle sweetener and the juice of 1 clementine or 1/2 an orange into the bowl.  Let sit for about 5 minutes, and serve immediately!

I used a clementine, because I didn't have orange juice on hand and quite frankly I have had them in my fridge for a while and was sick of eating them, so why not use their juices?  When the sugar and the citrus juices sit in the bowl with the fruit you end up getting a great fruit salad sauce!
Pomegranate Seeds, Kiwi, Blueberries, Seckel Pears, 1 packet Splenda, and the juice of one clementine!
