Best Ever Fruit Salad

This simple but spectacular fruit salad filled with fresh berries, pineapple and pomegranate is my new favorite!

The very best fruit salad!

This salad happened sort of by accident. I threw it together for my sister’s wedding shower back in November, with whatever ready-to-use fruit looked good at Costco— strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, blackberries, pomegranate arils and raspberries. I also added some chopped fresh mint and vanilla bean paste to make it extra special for the occasion.

And the combo was amazing! I just had to share it with you.

All the fruit for the very best fruit salad

This really is THE BEST fruit salad ever. It’s my new go-to for brunches and potlucks. And you can bet it’s going to make an appearance on Easter!

There’s not a lot of chopping and the whole thing comes together in just a few minutes. The addition of mint and vanilla may sound a bit unusual, but they do a lot to set this salad apart from others. It’s so fresh and flavorful, and even feels a bit fancy!
