REFRESHING WATERMELON – PEACH SALAD

Fruit salads are easy and fun to prepare. And there are no rules on what fruits you should use or what dressing you have to add-in. You combine whatever your heart desires 🙂 

I like to buy mostly seasonal fruits to that’s why here in this summer salad, I only have fresh summer fruits. I prepare fruit salad more than three times a week, and I found that this combination works the best for summer fruit salad, because of the texture and taste of the fruits  – it is the perfect sweet and sour mix.

What fruits are in:

  • Peaches  – preferably nectarine peaches because they have better texture and don’t change the color 
  • Waterlemon it’s light and refreshing and goes perfectly in this combination.
  • The melon gives so much texture in the salad, plus it provides tons of vitamins. 
  • Plums – are responsible for the sour taste in the salad – which makes this salad the perfect sweet-sour combination. 

Other summer fruits you can use: 

  • Mango can be used instead of watermelon
  • Grapes can be switched with the plums 
  • Ananas can be shifted with the peaches 
  • Also berries, cherries go perfect in every combination
  • Banana. 

Tips to make the best fruit salad every time:

Fruit salads are easy and quick to make but there are a couple of things that you have to know to keep them fresh and tasty:

  • Use refrigerated fruits. It’s the best if fruits are refrigerated before serving – that way they stay fresh and have more flavor. 
  • Mix sweet and sour fruits. To get the best fruit salad combination, there has to be a mix of sweet and bitter fruits. 
  • Keep the fruits fresh. If you are making fruit salads ahead and you are using fruits like a banana that change the color, it’s best if you toss them in lime juice – that way, they won’t change the color. 

Different fruit salad dressings:

  • Lime – honey dressing and grated lime crust 
  • Orange and maple syrup – goes best with sour fruits like kiwi, orange, strawberry, pineapple 
  • Creamy dressing – goes best with sweet fruits like banana.
