Fruit salad is a classic dish that will add freshness and flavor to any meal. But if you’re planning a special occasion, adding a little something new can really make this dish stand out. Here are a few ideas.
Citrus Zest and Fresh Mint
Adding a burst of citrus flavor to your fruit salad can instantly elevate its taste. Start by grating the zest of an orange or a lemon and sprinkle it over your mixed fruit. Not only will this add some color, but it will also give a tangy kick to the salad. To balance the citrusy notes, chop up some fresh mint leaves and toss them in.
Toasted Coconut and Almonds
For a textural contrast and a hint of nutty flavor, toast some coconut flakes and sliced almonds. Sprinkle these over your fruit salad just before serving so that they stay crisp. Your guests won’t be able to resist the tropical touch and satisfying crunch.
Yes, you read that right – balsamic glaze isn’t just for savory dishes. Drizzling a balsamic glaze over your fruit salad can create an unexpected and intriguing blend of sweet and tangy flavors. The syrupy consistency of the glaze will also add a new touch to your fruit salad.
