Summa Summa Summa time!
What summer BBQ would be complete without a fruit salad or a fruit cocktail? On this, another Friday I bring to you a jazzed up fruit salad you won’t make any other any after you have tried this. Its minty, sour, sweet so refreshing and perfect for summer in every way.
For my fruit cocktail I went with melons since they hold a lot of water and are not too sugary. I find melons to be one of the most refreshing fruits, not too sweet and hold a lot of water. Hence I decided to do a melon salad with the only addition of grapes for added flavor dimension. The grapes are a lovely sweet/sour bits amidst the array of melons.
