Recipe of the Week: Summer Colors

This has got to be the simplest fruit salad you can make that will no doubt impress everyone. I made it for a friend's party once and she tells me she now makes it all the time. And it's an antioxidant powerhouse.
I'm not psyched about the name Summer Colors and am open to other ideas. Please let me know if you've got any. In the meantime, here is:

Summer Colors

2-4 large mangoes, cubed
1 pint blueberries, washed
1 pint raspberries, firm, washed

Throw all the fruit in one big bowl, mix, and you're done!

This recipe is low in calories, high in Vitamin C and fiber, packs potassium and loads of all kinds of disease fighting phytonutrients like anthocyanins, carotenes & phenolics (anti-oxidants) ellagic acid (anti-carcinogenic, anti-bacterial-viral), the list goes on and on. But most importantly, it's yummy!

Have a fruit and veggie filled day!
