5 fresh salads where fruit takes centre stage
1. Super-charged salad with blueberries and pomegranate
This super-charged salad explodes with goodness. Blueberries, cranberries and pomegranate seeds create a triple-whammy of fruity anti-oxidants. Also, did you know that blueberries are one of the only natural foods that are truly blue in colour? Truly.
2. Strawberry, peanut brittle, avo and goat cheese salad
A show stopping salad, this number. Thumbs up for creative combinations. We like a good, rebel mix of greens that wander off the beaten track. Rumour has it, strawberries are good for dental hygiene, so combining them with peanut brittle? Yes, please.
3. Papaya, lime, Bulgarian yoghurt and pistachio nut salad
Next time you’re having a lazy Sunday breakfast shindig, why not give these papaya boats a whirl? It’s nutty, wholesome and served in a fruit. Papayas are also a potent source of vitamin C and A. Night vision and edible bowls, for the win.
4. Watermelon, sesame seed and feta salad
You hear watermelon, you think summer. This pretty in pink salad could not be simpler and looks oh-so-lovely. Watermelons are champs at quenching thirst and curing inflammation. Can we tell you a secret? They’re actually a vegetable, related to cucumbers, but we snuck it in anyway.
5. Fig, radicchio and parma ham salad
The fig – a wondrous ingredient, bound to cause some serious magic in any recipe. This beautiful bouquet of leafy goodness contains several fruits and even a raspberry dressing.
