Now that spring has arrived, it’s time to ditch those boring winter veggies and embrace the colourful and juicy fruits of the season. And what better way to do that than with some tasty fruit salads?
If you’re anything like my husband, you’re probably going “Salad? Ugh, no thanks, I’ll just stick to my burger.” But hear me out, these fruit salads are not your average salads. They’re colourful, flavourful, and will make you forget all about that greasy fast food.
Let’s start with the classic combo: strawberries and spinach. This may sound weird, but trust me, it’s a match made in salad heaven. Throw in some sliced almonds, feta cheese, and a balsamic vinaigrette, and you’ve got yourself a gourmet salad that’ll make your taste buds sing.
Feeling tropical? Try a pineapple and mango salad. Add some sliced red onion, fresh coriander (or basil, or parsley), and lime juice, and you’ve got yourself a fresh and zesty salad that’ll transport you to a sunny beach. Just don’t forget your sunscreen!
If you’re a fan of the sweet and savoury combo, then the blueberry and goat cheese salad is for you. Toss some rocket, toasted pecans (sunflower seeds are great if you;re allergic to nuts), and a honey mustard vinaigrette into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a salad that’s both healthy and indulgent.
And finally, for those of you with a sweet tooth, the strawberry and peach salad is a must-try. Combine some mixed greens, toasted almonds, and a poppy seed dressing, and you’ve got yourself a salad that’s as pretty as it is tasty.
Say goodbye to boring old lettuce and tomatoes, and hello to colourful and flavourful seasonal fruit salads. Your taste buds will thank you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to make myself a salad that’s so delicious, it’ll make me forget all about pizza. Maybe.
