So this summer make the best use of seasonal fruits that nature offers like mangoes, jackfruit, chikoos, berries etc.

Fruit salad is a healthy dish but one has to be careful to choose the right combination of fruits. Wrong combination of fruits could be toxic to the body or create discomfort in the stomach.

To be on the safer side, For this tropical fruit salad I have chosen sweet fruits like mango, banana, chickoo and papaya.

The fruit salad was yummy specially because all the fruits were organic. They were so good and sweet that I did not add any sweetener or sugar in the salad.

Always use ripe and sweet fruits while making a fruit salad, so that you don’t need to add any extra sugar or sweetener. Also half-ripe or semi-ripe fruits can give stomach problems.

As a topping on the fruits, I added some cashew nuts, almonds and walnuts for additional texture and crunch. You can even roast the nuts if you want. Nuts and dry fruits once roasted becomes a good snacking as well as munching snack.

You can dry roast the dry fruits in an oven or in a pan and spice them with your favorite spices and store them in air tight container and munch on them whenever you want.

Few tips for making a good fruit salad

  • Use the fruits which are in season.
  • Use fresh, ripe and sweet tasting fruits only.
  • Fruits should ideally not be eaten after a meal. Its always better to have fruits at least half an hour or 1 hour before the meal.
  • Avoid mixing acidic and citrus fruits with sweets fruits.
  • Avoid mixing citrus fruits with milk based items.
  • Fruits are perishable and don’t have a long shelf life once chopped. So its always better to consume them fresh.
  • You can use mint leaves for garnishing as well for digestive properties.
  • You can also add your choice of dry roasted dry fruits for additional flavor.
