Summertime is just around the corner, which means it’s time to take advantage of the longer days, warmer nights, and fresh food with friends and family for lots of fun! I definitely plan to entertain guests this summer, hang out poolside and enjoy plenty of days at the beach. When hosting a summer soiree, it is important to fill your guests with the best feelings as soon as they enter your home to make them feel welcome, and that includes the food you serve!

Honey pineapple fruit salad – served in a pineapple bowl!
- 1 whole fresh pineapple
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup halved strawberries
- 1 cup mandarin oranges
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
How to make a pineapple bowl
Cut and hollow out the pineapple. Slice it down the middle vertically, so that you have two halves from top to bottom as pictured below.
Hollow out one of the pineapple halves
Next, take one of the pineapple halves and carefully cut the fruit out of the middle, without puncturing the sides. Once you cut the pineapple in half, you’ll find a decent amount of pineapple juice inside, DON’T DISCARD IT!
Then, in a separate bowl, mix honey, mint, and the leftover juice and set aside. Now, cut up the other half of the pineapple, mango and strawberries into small pieces and mix it into the honey mint mixture, along with the remainder of your fruit. Toss until coated.

Finally, scoop the fruit salad mixture into the hollow pineapple, and voila! You have a delicious, presentable summer pineapple fruit salad! I really like how this turned out, it tastes great and my kids were all over it. My favorite part is the presentation. You could also serve this fruit salad on top of a bed of banana leaves and use the smaller pineapples to hold your beverages. Add a little colorful umbrella and you’re all set for summer!
