Perfect for summer picnics or Memorial Day cookouts, this fruit dish is mellowed by a subtle flavor of vanilla. Look for vanilla beans in your grocery’s spice section. To use, slit them open lengthwise and scrape out the seeds.


2cups pineapple cubes
1cup strawberry slices
1cup blueberries
1/4cup sugar
-- Seeds from 2 vanilla beans


  1. Combine fruit, sugar and vanilla beans seeds in a large bowl. Toss well. Makes about 4 cups.
