This easy to make fruit salad is versatile-serve it with breakfast or brunch, as a part of your lunch or as a healthier dessert option. If you want to lighten the recipe up, use fresh peaches and pineapple instead of canned and sprinkle with a touch of sugar.

  • large can pineapple chunks
  • large can peach pie filling
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 cup candied pecans
In a large bowl, combine peach filling and pineapple, reserving pineapple juice. Pour juice in a small bowl and add chopped apple. Allow to soak for 10 minutes. While apples are soaking, peel and slice kiwi, set aside. Add apples to large bowl and place bananas in the juice, soaking for 10 minutes. While bananas are soaking, remove the tops from the strawberries and cut into quarters. Add to large bowl. Add blueberries and pecans to bowl, gently mix all ingredients together. Garnish with kiwi slices. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
