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.
