Take advantage of ripe summer fruit to make this simple summertime fruit salad! Peaches, strawberries, blueberries, and balsamic vinegar make a killer fruit salad.



  1. In a medium serving bowl, combine the strawberries, peaches, blueberries and basil. Drizzle the lemon juice, maple syrup and balsamic vinegar on top. Gently toss to combine.
  2. Serve immediately, or chill for later. This salad is best enjoyed promptly, but will keep well for about 2 days in the refrigerator (pour off excess juices if necessary).


Make it vegan: Be sure to use maple syrup, not honey.
Why buy organic? Strawberries are the worst offenders on the dirty dozen list this year, so please buy organic strawberries if possible. Peaches and blueberries tend to be treated with fertilizers and pesticides as well, so organic is best for those, too.
