How To Make A Super Easy Fruit Plate
This is a sponsored post partnership with Walmart to share about their Marketside Organic produce line.
When we travel I try to still keep the girls favorite snacks on hand for them to eat.
One of their favorites is a fruit plate. It tastes delicious, which is obviously important to us all… but it's also really easy and easy to take with us! This past weekend we stayed at a vacation rental along the central coast of California. Once we were all settled in we made a quick stop at Walmart for some snack food including some fruits to make a fruit plate!
Walmart's Marketside organic produce has a new “fresher” look.
They rebranded their line to make it easier for us to identify their organic products. The packaging will now be marked with a purple organic label and the USDA Organic seal. One of the reasons I shop at Walmart is that I can do one stop shopping for everything I need… and do it quickly! This will totally help get me in and out the door and back to doing fun things with my family. It's also going to be very helpful when I go shopping with the girls. The older two help pick out food at the store and this is a great visual help for them to know which produce to buy.
Marketside organic produce will feature 50 popular items, in 2,300 stores.
The organic produce is in a separate section within the produce area too. The items i'm most excited about are the avocados, apples, packaged salads, carrots, broccoli, onions, kale, rainbow chard, juice, grapes, potatoes, strawberries and more!
Walmart always strives to have the lowest prices. Their Marketside organics will be no exception.
This is the easiest fruit plate you will ever make!
When I make our fruit plate I always think of the following things:
- Add different color fruits.
- Add different types or all the same. Have one citrus, one grape, one strawberry. Or do all citrus and have 10 different ones.
- Make it ready to eat. Peel citrus and have it all washed.
- Have different sizes to make it visually appealing. Small grapes look great next to big strawberries.
- Put it on a pretty plate and table… but still let the fruit be the prettiest thing!
- Buy seasonally. The best tasting fruits are the ones in season.
For this plate I chose organic strawberries, oranges, grapes and apples. We ate the apples on the way home from the store though… they were so juicy and sweet!
