We love the fruits of summer!  Local, fresh-picked fruit is better.  You can eat it plain, just chilled in the refrigerator, or you can use it in your baking to make scrumptious desserts.  You can also make fabulous salads. 

In this issue, we’ll share some of our favorite fruit salads, salads that we think you and your family will love.  We’ll also talk about preparing those fruits so that you can get the best from your bounty.  We’ll even talk about coupling those fruits with desserts. 

Enjoy the fruits of summer.

Favorite Fruit Salad Recipes

Here are some of our favorite fruit salads. 

Fruit salads are perfect for the venturesome.  If you don’t like pineapple or peaches are not in season, substitute.  (Mangoes make a great substitute for peaches.)   Fruit salads can be simple affairs.  Some of these call for complex dressings.  Feel free to use another dressing. 

If you are looking for a simple, sweet dressing use our new Lawford Private Reserve Cream Syrups.   They are fabulous.  My personal favorite is coconut cream.  It makes an out-of-this world topping for fruit.

How to Make a Sweetened Fruit Salad

Sometimes simpler is better.  Fresh fruit is so good that you don’t want to overwhelm it with other ingredients or too many flavors. Two or three fruits are often just right especially if you choose fruits of different colors or textures.  Prep the fruit, toss them in a bowl with a little lemon juice, and then add a bit of sweetener.  (The lemon juice helps keep many fruits from turning dark.)

How to Turn Your Fruit into a Dessert

Fruit is sweet and refreshing, a dessert in it’s own right.  A mixture of fruit can be colorful and alluring.  When that mixture is topped upon a cake or a shortcake, maybe with a dollop or whipped cream, then the dessert is regal.

Preparing Fruits for Salads and Desserts

Generally, postpone the preparation of fruits—peeling and slicing—until just before serving.  If the fruit is not going to be used immediately, adding a tablespoon of lemon juice and tossing the fruit with the lemon juice will retard browning.
