18 Fruit Salad Recipes That Let Your Sweet Produce Shine
Italian Fruit Salad
Fresh basil and seasonal fruit are a no-fail combo sure to impress the dinner table. The bright herb enhances even subtle fruits, like watermelon and grapes, letting them take center stage. Tossed in a lightly sweet honey dressing, this fruit salad can double as dessert.
Cucumber-Honeydew Salad with Feta
Sprigs of dill and chopped onion give this cucumber-melon fruit salad a Mediterranean vibe. Serve it in late summer or early fall when melons are at their best.
Persimmon, Blood Orange, and Pomegranate Salad
Peach and Tomato Salad
Get a triple dose of summer-fresh melon in this refreshing fruit salad recipe. Peppery arugula, tangy feta, and a homemade garlic vinaigrette really are the perfect savory additions to the sweet melons.
Fresh Citrus and Cranberry Salad
Gingered Fruit Compote
Blackberry Salad with Creamy Feta
Sweet, juicy blackberries hold court over pickled onions and salty feta in this umami-inspired fruit salad. A quick run in the food processor allows the feta to get whipped into a super creamy delight that's so good, you'll want to eat it with a spoon.
Corn and Blueberry Salad
Nothing says summer like sweet corn and fresh blueberries, and this salad has both (plus crunchy summer cucumbers!). Of course, such a bright salad needs an equally zesty vinaigrette, so we mixed together lime juice, olive oil, honey, and cumin.
Apple, Celery Root, and Fennel Salad
Spicy Fruit Salad
Grains & Fruit Summer Salad
Mango, Tomato, and Avocado Salad
Yes, they're used in savory dishes more than sweet, but tomatoes and avocados belong to the fruit family, too. Here we've let them shine with sweet chunks of mango. If you want to add more veggies, you can serve this salad over a bed of lettuce leaves, but we love it all on its own.
