Peel, chop, slice. Eat. Repeat.
The weather is heating up. Time to start freshening up your food plan. Cold, crisp fruits and crunchy nuts are the perfect summer snack or end to a meal. You can spoon this salad over some chilled yogurt or you can enjoy this salad as is with a mimosa in hand and a foot in the pool.
I love the addition of an herb such as basil or mint. This just adds to that refreshing cool. Some cinnamon and a squirt of lemon + zest also add a nice touch to the salad. For a savory kick, you could even thinly slice some red onion or shallot and toss it in. Cucumbers and tomatoes? Some chopped avocado? A dash of chilli powder? Endless possibilities await you.
I threw in some cashews and almonds as well as some dried cranberries, cherries, and figs.
Top everything off with some cinnamon, lemon juice, and a basil leaf.
No measurements needed, just add the amounts to your liking. No cooking needed, just find a pretty bowl and a dainty fork. Oh, and please and thank you don’t choke on a cherry pit. My heimlich skills are a bit rusty.
