Creative Fruit Salad Recipes!

December 9, 2014 3:09 pm

When you go to a social gathering and you’re met with a plethora of tasty covered dishes and desserts, it can be hard to restrain yourself from going overboard. Fruit salads are some of the only dinner party offerings that you can actually feel good about overindulging in, and they come in a wide variety of styles that just about everyone will love. Here are three creative fruit salads that will make you want to go back for more!

Melon and Mozzarella Salad [Southern Living]
Fruits and cheeses are a truly perfect pairing, and this light, juicy combination of melon and mozzarella is a wonderful summer treat. Simply fill a large serving bowl with layers of cubed fruits and mozzarella cheese wedges, then toss it all in a tangy lemon poppy seed dressing to finish it off.

Ginger and Lemon Fruit Salad [My Recipes]
If you prefer to add a bit of spice to your side dishes, you’ll just love this gingery lemon fruit salad. Pears, pineapple, mango, and other fruits take on a whole new life when they meet the zesty flavor of grated fresh ginger.

Mojito Fruit Salad [AllRecipes]
Just like a refreshing mojito cocktail, this creative fruit salad gets its signature flavor from the addition of a few sprigs of fresh mint. Basic fruits like watermelon, grapes, and cantaloupe are sweetened even more with white sugar, and then tossed around in tart lime juice to extract their flavors. Finish it off with the cool mint leaves for an unexpected taste that your guests won’t soon forget.
