16 Fresh Fruit Salad Recipes

Cool down with a rainbow of ideas for refreshing summertime fruit salads.

A fruit salad is the perfect go-to recipe when you need a beautiful and easy dish for your entertaining table. Loaded with taste and nutrition, brimming with gorgeous jewel-like colors, and quick and easy to assemble, fruit salads are traditional favorites at backyard barbecues, Sunday brunches, and ladies’ luncheons. Make a weeknight meal special and drizzle a simple syrup over a bowl of mixed fruit for a light dessert. Or bump up the flavor in a green salad by tossing in seasonal berries and diced melon. Brighten up a cold winter day with a sweet and sunny citrus salad. Browse your farmers’ market for the sweetest seasonal fruit, but don’t be afraid to use frozen in your salad. It offers the same great taste and nutrition when fresh fruit is not available.
