Making fruit salad looks easy but its not as easy as you think, you might just chop a bunch of fruits together, through them in a bowl but when you taste them or look at them they are unattractive and flat. This is because a lot of thought go into making this delicious and healthy delicacy.
There are things you need to know before you make your fruit salad, this tips would help you create a tasty and sumptuous looking fruit salad dish;
- When it comes to the texture and flavor, creating your fruit salad dish with seasonal fruits is the best choice because they always taste better.
- A fruit salad looses its appeal when you can feel different uneven textures(mushy, hard, unripe etc) in one bite therefore if all the fruits have an even texture i.e they are all ripe and soft with a small crunch then the bowl would be in harmony.
- Tossing into a bowl some hues like orange, purple, green, red helps to highlight and make the bowl pop. Also adding textures like grains, seedy and crispy fruits leave your palette engaged.
- Fruit salad looks best when the fruits have been prepped e.g stems, pits and even skin on fruits like cherries, grape and strawberries should be cleaned out to avoid biting down on bitter seeds.
- In culinary school you are thought a trick; Uniform dices which makes the fruit salad prettier and easier to chew. So choose a measurement and stick with it.
- Make your salad attractive by filling the fruits up with equal parts so it doesn’t feel like people are left with the unwanted dregs.
- One way to make your salad tastier is to amplify with citrus zest (orange, lime, lemon etc). They also prevent your fruit from turning brown.
- Herbs like mint are not just for decoration, they also add flavor to the salad.
- Some fruits come off tasting tart and tough this means they have not ripened properly, simply sprinkle granulated sugar and allow it to soak into the fruit.
