Rainbow Peace Fruit Salad

After the events of last weekend I think this world needs more peace and love to spread around. I made this recipe thinking of the victims of the Orlando massacre and named it the Rainbow Peace Fruit Salad, because I wanted it to reflect the LGBT community and I want it to bring people together to spread love and peace, not hate!

I used a lot of fresh fruit in this salad and tried to use one fruit from each color group. I used strawberries for red, blueberries for blue and even kiwis for green!

You can use any food coloring you want, or you could even use the lemon flavored pudding mixture to give the pudding a yellow tint  without having to use the food coloring. I wouldn’t suggest using chocolate pudding because that is not easily dyed.

This salad is a refreshing summer treat that isn’t too heavy so you can still feel good in your swimsuit! To make the salad lighter use sugar free pudding mix, lite cool whip and sugar free cookies!
