To make the fruit salad.

In a large bowl, add 2 quarts of sliced strawberries, pineapple chunks, and blueberries.

Add the pie filling (homemade or canned) to the prepared fruit and gently fold with a large spatula, being careful not to break up the fruit.

Serve immediately, or refrigerate for later.

NOTES:

Don’t forget to add the vanilla if you’re using canned pie filling. If the pie filling becomes too thick, thin it up with a little water. Keep in mind that pie filling is thick and will thin out when combined with fruit.
