Here are a few things we consider every time we make this HEALTHY FRESH FRUIT SALAD:

Ingredients for the Healthy Fresh Fruit Salad

FRESH

My goodness everything about this salad shouts fresh. We suggest picking up your favourite fruits and pulling them together with our suggested dressing. Wait, what? Yup, more about that in a bit; for now, let’s begin with fresh fruit – in season, organically grown will always taste even better.

Mango, cantaloupe, honeydew and grapes

FAVOURITES

We’ve made this salad with pineapple, mango, plums, pears, apples, oranges and even a combination of melons, grapes, kiwis and peaches. Hopefully a little bulb went off above your head. Making the salad with your favourites is the way to go.

Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries

BERRY LOVE

We do suggest berries make an appearance in your HEALTHY FRESH FRUIT SALAD. They’ve loaded with vitamins and minerals but we think the colour also adds a little something to the mix that shouldn’t be missed. Again, locally grown in season will bring out the flavours even more.

Ingredients for the Cherry Mojito Dressing

DRESSING

The idea for this salad started with a favourite cocktail: a mojito. I know, weird, right? Anyway, there’s something so refreshing about the combination of lime with fresh mint, it got me thinking about other combinations.

Ingredients for the Cherry Mojito Dressing

Before I knew it, I was putting the idea in motion and developed a simple enhancement for the fruit salad that gives it a bright pop of flavour. Who knew cherries, mint, lime, orange juice and a tiny drop of honey could do so much. You’ll see when you make it!

IMPORTANT: fresh or frozen cherries will work equally as well. Hurray!

BLEND IN

We’ve added a link to purchase the spiffy immersion blender used to create the dressing. It certainly is one of my most trusted and often-used small kitchen appliances.

Simply place the ingredients for the fresh fruit dressing into the canister, zip everything up and you have an instant flavour enhancer like no other. Add a bit on the salad, toss and serve with leftover dressing on the side for guests who want a bit more. And they will!
