Pineapple and Watermelon Salad

I’m back from camping. And yes, we saw ladybugs at Ladybug tower…lots of them which was amazing since it had rained all morning. It was everything my kids hoped it would be…then literally minutes later we were pounded by a hail storm. Here’s a glimpse of one of the trees by the tower.
We have been on vacation for an entire month and although it’s been fun…there’s nothing like home. So while I’m trying to put a small dent in the mountain of laundry that awaits me, I’ll leave you with a simple fruit salad that is healthy and refreshing. It’s another clean dish from Mary at My Green Diet and let’s face it…I have a few vacation lbs to lose.

Pineapple and Watermelon Salad


  • 1 pineapple, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced (I used 1/4 cup because that's all I had and I think it was plenty)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 watermelon, cut into bite-sized pieces


  1. Mix pineapple pieces with basil and lime juice. Place watermelon pieces in serving dish and pour pineapple over the top. So not stir together. Garnish with lime and basil.
