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!
