My 5 tips for a successful fresh fruit salad!

Fruit salad is certainly one of the easiest desserts to prepare, provided you pay attention to a few details. Here are my 5 tips for a successful fresh fruit salad!

  1. Choose fruits that go well together
  2. Prepare the fresh fruit salad up to three hours in advance
  3. Avoid putting fresh fruit salad in the refrigerator
  4. Watch out for stained fruit!
  5. Add a touch of originality

1. Choose fruits that go well together

The art of a fruit salad is to mix several fruits that go well together. For this I always choose a mix of sour fruits (pineapple, kiwi, orange, lemon), sweet fruits (mango, banana) and I love to add red berries for their color (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries). This combination works every time!

2. Prepare the fresh fruit salad up to three hours in advance

The fresh fruit salad is really better eaten fresh, so I advise you to prepare it maximum three hours in advance.

3. Avoid putting the fruit salad in the refrigerator

Some fruits, such as strawberries, lose their flavour when stored in the refrigerator. I recommend that you prepare this fruit salad at the last minute and keep it in a closed container in a cool place until you are ready to serve it. Only, if I have leftovers, I keep them in the refrigerator.

4. Watch out for stained fruit!

To get a visually appealing fruit salad, watch out for staining fruits such as blackberries or raspberries. I add them at the last minute to avoid coloring the other fruits when mixing.

5.Add a touch of originality

What I like to do is add a touch of originality like basil leaves or even fresh oregano leaves or thyme. You can also add fresh ginger or lavender flowers.
