While it is good for you to eat fruit all year round, there is not a more exciting time of the year for it than in summer! With the sun in full shine, a big bowl of colourful seasonal fruit will taste the best, along with it being highly nutritious.
It’s also our favourite season because all the exotic fruits are around too – which will make your standard fruit salad much more exciting. We have put together a list of fresh, colourful, delicious and moreish easy fruit salads that you can create yourself!

Nope they’re not just funny looking grapes; this fruit salad features purely melons – Watermelon, Honey Dew Melon and Cantaloupe. All tossed with some mint and honey. If you were wondering, the secret to the presentation of our picture is to buy a mellow baller, so you can serve bite-size beauties rather than slices.
