Happy Father's Day and a Fruit Recipe

Hope everyone will have a fun and relaxing Father's Day with their favorite guy.
We will hang out, do breakfast in bed (remember the Breakfast casserole recipe I posted last week) and then my in-laws will come over to grill some steaks and corn on the cob and this yummy fruit salad I make with strawberries, blueberries, rasberries and blackberries and mint, ginger, vanilla and your favorite all fruit preserves. It's my FIL's favorite thing I make.

Here is a quick lowdown on the fruit salad I make. Measurements are approx because I tend to cook without recipes and by taste, smell. LOL

Summer fruits of your choice ( I do i package of fresh strawberries and slice, 1 small pack of fresh blueberries(
leave whole), 1 small pack of fresh rasberries(leave whole) and 1 pack of blackberries(leave whole)

1 small jar of Smucker's blackberry preserves (or can use strawberry, I've even used peach)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tsp dried mint (or can finely mince some fresh) If ya like more then use it.
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
**I use honey in this too if I want it sweeter** maybe a tsp or so. And, I've even grated a little orange peel in this too for extra zest.**

Warm the spices, vinegar, preserves either in a microwave bowl or on top of stove just to disolve the preserves. DON'T boil.

Slice strawberries, mix in other fruit in a bowl. When the sauce mixture is cool, pour over fruit and gently toss with a big spoon. Chill and serve.
