Fruit Salad

About the Menu

 This menu features three kid favorites dishes, perfect for a hot summer night or weekday dinner.  Leftover pasta and fruit salad are excellent to pack for school lunch or a picnic dinner. This menu is also very economical, with an estimated cost of about $16 for four people and all fresh food.  


Homemade Caesar dressing-5 minutes prep time. Serve with salad, as a veggie dip, or a sandwich spread.

Pasta au Basilic- loaded with nutrients and flavor. 5-10 minutes prep time.

Make the fruit salad, and you can serve it for two to three days. It gets better with time.

Total prep time 20-30 minutes.


If someone doesn't care for the pasta, or if someone would like a meat option with the meal, serve a plate of charcuterie after the pasta. Charcuterie is a plate of meats such as, prosciutto, capicola, and bresaola. A charcuterie plate is an easy no-cook option.

  • A Real Game Changer

    "We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."

  • Accidental Weight Loss!

    “I don't know if I told you, but I accidentally lost about 8 lbs after cutting out most semi-processed foods!"
