Total time
Recipe type: Appetizer or Salad
Serves: 4
  • 2 large pineapples
  • 1 bunch of seedless green grapes
  • 2 large Fuji (or other sweet apple), washed, cored and sliced (keeping skins on)

  • 2 c. strawberries, sliced in half
  • 1 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  1. Cut pineapples in half (slicing right down the center of the top).
  2. With a knife, take one of the pineapple halves and cut around the edges with a knife (being careful to not damage the pineapple edge).
  3. Take the knife and then cut the inside of the pineapple as if you were cutting vertically, then horizontally.
  4. With a spoon (or fork), scoop out the inside of the pineapple.
  5. Once the pineapple meat is out of the center, scrape the inside of the pineapple with a spoon, getting the edges as smooth as possible (see photograph below).
  6. Cut the pineapple meat into small chucks.
  7. In a large bowl, add in all the fruit.
  8. Pour lemon juice over the mixture and gently toss.
  9. Place a generous helping of fruit salad into the pineapple shell and serve immediately.
