Gathered here is a special presentation for fresh-sliced fruit salad-that goes fast! Our home economists began by carving containers from oranges, then added refreshing grapes, strawberries, blueberries and more inside. While breakfast is cooking, kids can help by preparing the fruit and filling the baskets.
