Quick Tricks To A Better Fruit Salad

Quick Tricks To A Better Fruit Salad

It may seem as though there’s not much to a fruit salad other than tossing chopped fruit in a bowl, but a few simple tricks transform a boring fruit salad into something enticing to the eye and pleasing to the palate. From picking fruit with the same level of ripeness to spritzing fruit with lemon juice, these tricks will help you make better fruit salads all year round.

Buy Seasonal Fruit

Flavor- and texture-wise, seasonal fruit always tastes better. Ever had mealy, bland blueberries or apples during their off-season? This happens often, but it’s best to avoid buying produce from halfway around the world during its off-season. Instead, look for seasonal produce that’s local to you — or at least originating from the continent in which you live.

Choose Fruit With the Same Levels of Ripeness

A fruit salad instantly becomes less appetizing when some bites are mushy and other bites are too tart and tough. Additionally, overly ripe fruit can disintegrate quickly into a pulpy mush that coats all the other fruit pieces. By mixing together ripe but not mushy fruits, salads look fresh and vibrant for a longer period of time.

Add Avocado
Avocado is a great addition to any salad. It is a fruit and tastes great with berries. Avocados also offer healthy fats and antioxidants.
Cut The Fruit Into the Same Shapes
When preparing a salad, cut the pieces of fruit in to uniform sizes. You won’t be able to do this with all types of fruits, but with most types of fruits, this tactic will be very helpful.
Use Equal Parts of Each Fruit
Add Whipped Cream or Yogurt
A little whipped cream or yogurt goes great with fresh fruit. These are also great substitutes for ice-cream.
