12 Delicious Fruit Salads and Salsa Recipes

Take your favorite fresh fruit to another flavor level, and get even more fruit in your diet, with these easy recipes.

Rethink Fruit:

By Amy O'ConnorCotton-candy sweet melon. Juicy, heart-healthy berries. Plump, mellow mango. Sweet, fragrant peaches, nectarines and apricots. All these summer fruits are delicious alone, but chopped and tossed in low-fat dressings spiked with ginger, lime, or mint, they make colorful, low-calorie dishes you'll want to serve every day.

Lavender-Scented Summer Fruit Salad:

A stunning way to serve low-calorie fresh summer fruit, which is packed with antioxidants and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases and cancer. Fruit is marinated in a minty dressing with the subtle flavor of fresh flowers. Serve it outside and feel transported to the south of France, where lavender and other wild herbs and flowers are popular companions to fresh fruit. 

Melon Salad with Lime-Ginger Syrup:

Fresh ripe melon tastes even more delicious with a spike of ginger dressed in sweet lime dressing. Melon is a great source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Ginger, famous as a stomach soother, has loads of other health benefits.

Chilled Tutti Frutti Poppy Seed Salad:

Peaches, berries, and amazingly sweet cherries get a subtle crunch with the addition of poppy seeds—and you get an amazing burst of flavor. Colorful fruits are high in antioxidants and polyphenols, which help fight chronic disease and cancer. This fruit salad is delicious on it's own, but it also pairs beautifully with yogurt or vanilla ice cream.

Summer Melon with Fig and Prosciutto:

A classic Tuscan blend of sweet, salty, and juicy, this surprisingly low-calorie salad is perfect as an appetizer or side. (Don't overthink the recipe; it calls for three kinds of melon and several types of greens, but you can use what's fresh at the market.) If you've ever bought fresh figs and melon and wondered what to do with them, make this recipe! 

Grilled Watermelon, Mint, and Feta Salad:

Many summer fruits can stand up to the heat of your grill, and believe it or not watermelon is one of them. Cooling mint and salty feta cheese provide the perfect balance to the sweet, smoky, juicy melon cubes.

Ginger-Citrus Fruit Salad:

Next time you find yourself with an abundance of citrus fruit, make this delicious, vitamin C-packed recipe. Spicy ginger keeps for weeks in your fridge.
