Fresh Fruit Salad : Serve Chilled : The Mary Berry Way

This refreshing fruit salad recipe from Mary Berry can be made in advance and won’t oxidise and go brown. Serve chilled it is great for warmer days.


Ingredients
Serves Six
1 ripe cantaloupe melon
2 ripe mangoes
1 orange
1 ripe papaya
4 passion fruit
225g/8oz raspberries
chilled crème fraîche, to serve (optional)
Method
1. Using a sharp knife, cut the melon in half, scoop out the seeds and discard. Cut each half into four. Remove the rind by slipping the knife between the melon flesh and rind, then cut the melon into bite-sized pieces
2. Peel the mango using a sharp knife or peeler. Slice the mango cheeks off either side of the large central flat stone, then cut the mango into cubes. Cut off the flesh around the stone too.
3. Using a serrated knife, slice off the top and bottom of the orange, then cut away all the peel and pith. Cut between the orange segments to remove each piece.
4. Peel the papaya with a knife or potato peeler and then cut the fruit in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds and cut the fruit into pieces.
5. Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop out the seeds.
6. Put all the fruit, except the raspberries, in a bowl, cover with cling film and put in the fridge, mixing from time to time.
7. Just before serving, add the fresh raspberries. Serve with chilled crème fraîche if liked.
Recipe Tips
The bulk of the salad can be made the day before - add the raspberries at the last minute.
Choose mangoes and papayas that just give when lightly squeezed so that you know they are ripe. Too firm and they will have no flavour, too soft and they are past their best.
The mix of fruits used in this recipe are not the lowest carb fruit available, so please bear this in mind. You can see a guide to carbs in fruit on this post here

Fruit salad in Summer is great. Roasted vegetables has become a favorite in the last year or so. Cooler weather will bring my oven back in favor around here.

I love your colorful summer flowers! It seems like all summer long we have the never-ending fruit salad bowl. The fruit gets replaced as fast as it is eaten. Mary B has some fun things in her version!

Pam said...

That salad looks AMAZING.

DVArtist said...

Oh this looks so good. I wish we could get good fresh fruit here. The PNW is just not famous for it at all.
