Fresh fruit salad is a traditional, healthy dessert. Not only delicious, it is nutritious, too – the natural antioxidants and fiber of fresh fruit support the body’s defenses and help to keep it running smoothly. When making a fruit salad, consider including the following choices – according to the USDA, these fruits are exceptionally high in antioxidants:
- Wild blueberries
- Red delicious apples
- Granny Smith apples
- Sweet cherries
- Black plums
Be sure to check the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list for fruits that should be organic. Also, look for locally grown varieties at your local farmer’s market, and enjoy!
