When preparing fruit salads, all fruits can be conditionally divided into the following:

With a high sugar content - all kinds of dried fruits, bananas, grapes, figs, dates, pineapples, persimmons, pomegranates. With an average sugar content - apricots, peaches, pears, apples, plums, watermelon, mangoes. These include some berries (blueberries, blueberries, strawberries). Low in sugar - all citrus fruits, as well as some varieties of apples and berries (currants, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries).


We prepare dressings for sweeter fruits based on condensed milk, cream, ice cream, syrups, fruit sauces. More sour ones are best seasoned with yogurt, sour cream, honey, caramel sauce.

Someone considers the only dressing for fruit salads - honey and their own fruit juice, this is true. Many people use chocolate chips or pour melted chocolate over a banana. A layer of mascarpone, along with caramel sauce or fruit syrup, is well suited for such salads.

We share recipes for fruit salads with simple dressings.

We take 2 large oranges, wash, clean, remove the white film. First cut into circles, and then the circle into pieces.

Sprinkle fruit juice so that it does not darken. Dress the salad with cream and honey and sprinkle with washed raisins, mix.
