Classic Citrus Salad

January 14, 2012

Author Notes: One day I found my self with a multitude of fruits just sitting around. Parker and Stella (3 and 6) were outside playing when they came in complaining they were hungry and wanted ice cream. We didn't have any ice cream so while I was looking around for something chilled I noticed the fruit again. I told them to wait a few minutes and I would bring out a surprise. Now, 3 years later being 6 and 9 this is still one of their Summer favorites and ask for it on every special occasion. Enjoy(: Whitneyjo
