Easy Peachy Fruit Salad – Quick Side Dish Idea

Shares 27

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I’m fixing dinner I forget about the side dishes.  I’m so focused on getting our main dish ready, that the sides get neglected.

Not to mention, that I just don’t like making elaborate sides very often. I like to keep it simple and quick.  But sometimes it’s hard to come up with quick side dish ideas that aren’t the same thing all the time.

This is one of those ideas that you can pull together in less than 5 minutes.  And it’s a bit different than your normal fruit salad.

Easy Peachy Fruit Salad


This isn’t my original idea, but I have no idea where I heard about it.  Basically, you use a can of peach pie filling and any other type of fruit you want.

Here’s what I used:



You can see that I really needed to use that banana quick!

I think this would be great with other types of pie filling too.  I may try apple sometime soon.

I don’t always have pie filling in my pantry, but I often buy “inspiration ingredients”.  These are things that look good to me when I go through the store, but I don’t have an immediate idea for using.  If it’s a pantry item that will keep well, I’ll purchase it. Eventually, an idea will hit or I’ll find a recipe for it.  This is how many of the recipes on this site get created.

This fruit salad hardly needs a written recipe, because it’s so adaptable.  But here it is for you anyway.
