Easy step by step on how to make easy mango fruit salad
Prepare your mangos, drain excess liquid from the can before pouring into a large bowl. If you are using the fresh fruit option, peel and cut into bite sized pieces. Make sure the pieces are small enough where no further cutting is needed once the fruit salad is plated.
Then, wash your strawberries and dice them into quarters for easy to eat size pieces. Add to bowl with mangos.
Next, wash and rise the blueberries. Shake off any excess water, dry with a paper towel. Add to the bowl with other fruits.
Also, peel and slice the kiwi into halves. Add to fruit mixture.
Mix all fruit together to combine, be careful not to mix to much and smash the fruit.
In a separate small bowl, heat the honey in the microwave for just 10 seconds. Then drizzle it over the top of the fruit salad.
Then, slice your lime in half and squeeze the juice of one of the halves into the bowl of fruit. Stir well to combine.
Taste and if desired you can add in the juice from the other lime half.
