I like using exotic fruits at this time of year as they go so well with a bit of sunshine. I like to make up a batch to keep in the fridge and eat over a couple of days.
The best thing about a fruit salad is you can have any combination of fruits. Choose the fruits you like best and make up your favourite mix. I have a sweet tooth so melon and pineapple make a great base for my fruit salad.
I always add some citrus juice to a fruit salad like lemon or lime. This really helps if you are making it up to eat over a couple of days as it helps stop the fruit browning. Lime works best with an exotic fruit salad, gives you a great zing too.
It is always nice to top the fruit salad with something colourful like mint or pomegranate as we eat with our eyes. For my exotic fruit salad I have topped with passion fruit which gives a beautiful flavour and cuts through the sharpness of the pineapple.
What do you like to have in your fruit salad? If you are not keen on fruit because of the texture then check out my mango smoothie.
