8 Fresh Fruit Salads

Take advantage of seasonal fruit with these tasty recipes

Fruit salads are so much more than the tasteless balled up bits of cantaloupe and honeydew melon so often passed off as a 'fresh fruit salad' in restaurants. In fact, fruit salads can also be composed of more than just fruit. Adding seasonal berries and fruits to greens is a refreshing way to spruce up a salad giving it a sweet, tart, and acidic touch. Plus, most fruits are a great source of nutrients and antioxidants — giving you a boost of flavor and a healthy touch.
