Fruit Salad for Hot weather.

It is HOT! Anyone else agree? So, for a nice, refreshing, and easy accompaniment to your meal try this salad. It's healthy and full of antioxidants, which makes it a perfect entry for Cate's ARF Tuesday at Sweetnicks. Drop by and see all of the other great entries. Easy Summer Salad
1/2 cantelope, cubed
handful of blueberries

Wash the blueberries and pat dry. Put the prepared cantelope in a bowl, sprinkle the blueberries on top. Enjoy with a light summer meal (we had this with last week's kabobs!). You can substitute other fruits if you like. Pineapple and strawberry would be good, too.

On a side note, does anyone know how to format within blogger when using Firefox? I can't underline using Ctl-U and when I upload pictures, it won't let me move them. I've developed a like for Firefox (thanks, Daddy) and forget about the formatting issues until halfway done with my post, then I have to open Explorer, sign in again, etc.

Madam Chow - It was so juicy and perfect, and you're right, went great with the cook-out.

Marye - Ha! That night we actually had strawberry shortcake...which is even better!

Farida - You are SO right!

Oh....cantelope & blueberries are two of my favorite fruits.
I've GOT to get some blueberry bushes planted sometime! I say that every year...

I don't think I can help you with Firefox...I'm sorry :( Hopefully someone can.

The salad sounds nice and refreshing.

Claire- I use Firefox with Blogger. When I switched over to a Mac I didn't like the way Safari worked with Blogger. I'd be more than happy to help you out in any way that I can. BUT just for the record...I am NO expert!!!!
