No Cook Recipe: Summer Fruit Salad

20 May

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.


Today I used a fruit combo of kiwi fruit, cuties (aka mini oranges), cherries, banana, grapes.

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.

Bottoms up!

    […] No Cook Summer Fruit Salad. I like to use a mix of fresh fruit and dried fruit, with some fresh herbs and cinnamon to pack a punch. It is hard not to eat the whole bowl in one sitting. […]
