Top 10 Fresh Fruit Salad Suggestions!

No Comments
pretty healthy fruit salad

Hey, guys! Thanks for stopping by! If you haven’t seen my post about 31 simple fresh fruit salad suggestions, then I will explain to you what I am doing, or at least trying to do. 🙂 In the previous article I selected 31 beautiful, easy to make and healthy fruit dishes from different food blogs and sites. I just listed them, I didn’t rank them. Now I picked up the very best 10 out of those 31 masterpieces and I would love to show them to you!

Two things you need to be aware with:

1. It wasn’t easy at all! I mean, just look at those fruit salads and try to select the best 10 yourself. You will see how difficult it will be. Because each one of them is:

  • Pretty looking
  • Fresh
  • Interesting
  • Easy
  • Healthy
  • Delicious

2. This is MY ranking. I am sure if you do your own, it will look a little bit different. It is all based on my personal taste. That is why I highly encourage you to write in the comments below which fruit salad deserves to be on first place, according to your opinion. I am very interested to find out what other people think.

I want to give you a hint about the first place salad. It is something really simple. There are actually other fruit salads, which are much richer and juicy and mouthwatering…But the idea of that salad, I loved it! It is so simple, so genius and the best part of it is that you could use that idea in other dishes…

Ok, enough with the talking! I am showing you the ranking. Sit back and enjoy!

Top 10 Fresh Fruit Salad Suggestions:

Star Spangled Fruit Salad from A Family Feast

top 10 fresh fruit salad - watermelon blueberries

I chose this salad to be in the first 10 because of the idea. Look at the presentation. Doesn’t that look unique? I mean, if you place that on the table, your guests, your children (or whoever!) will immediately start staring at it, without any doubt.  It just looks interesting, original and creative. The colors of the watermelon pieces and blueberries make a beautiful contrast and the forms “play” with each other. I haven’t tried that combination yet, but I don’t know why, I have the feeling it CAN’T NOT taste good.😀 Watermelon tastes amazing. Blueberry tastes amazing. So watermelon and blueberry will also taste amazing. Simple logic…

I think you could form stars also with other fruits. Here are 3 examples:

  • Melon
  • Dragon Fruit
  • Mango

I got another idea, when I saw this fruit salad. We all know how well watermelon goes with cheese, especially with mozzarella. Therefore you could replace the blueberries with little, delicious pieces of mozzarella. It won’t be a real fruit salad anymore, but still it is a great idea, I think…

I really hope this salad inspired you like it inspired me!

Ambrosia Fresh Fruit Salad from I Wash You Dry

top 10 fresh healthy fruit salad ambrosia

What is a top 10 fruit salad ranking without an Ambrosia Fruit Salad? “Sweet smelling”, “delicious”, that is what Ambrosia means, at least according to the articles about the history of Ambrosia salad. It is said, that Ambrosia is a substance, eaten by the Gods of Greek mythology. When they ate Ambrosia, they became strong and immortal.

So what is actually Ambrosia Fruit Salad? It is basically a salad, made of:

  • Mandarin Orange
  • Marshmallows
  • Whipped Cream
  • Sugar
  • Coconut

But that is, as I said “BASICALLY” 😀 Nowadays there are many different variations of Ambrosia salad. In this case, the salad I chose for my top 10, the ingredients are more than delicious:

  • Mandarin Orange
  • Green Grapes
  • Strawberry
  • Pineapple
  • Instead of sugar there is Greek Protein Vanilla Yogurt
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Whipped Topping

I think the Ambrosia Fruit Salad is so popular, because it is a very good replacement of the ice cream. It is sweet, but not so rich in calories. So, if you want to cheat, make yourself one big, fat, tasty Ambrosia Fruit Salad, top it with some honey and be happy! 🍧🍨🍦

Spicy Fruit Salad from Minimalist Baker

top 10 fresh healthy fruit salad spicy

First I want to make a notice: I am not making any advertisement of Minimalistbaker, but I just MUST admit: I admire them so, so much! They give great attention to little details and present their dishes in a very elegant and also professional way. I just sit and stare at their photos, with mouth wide open…😃 That is why I just couldn’t skip their fruit salad, I HAD to include it in my Top 10 Fresh Fruit Salad Suggestions.

It is a very original fruit salad. Definitely not suitable for everyone. Very specific. With Chilli…I know, I know, that sounds so weird. But weird recipes turn out to be one of the best recipes ever! (Ok, maybe not all of them…😁 ). For me, personally, this fruit salad deserves to be seen by more people. There are lots of crazy guys out there, who love to combine sweet with salty with spicy…with everything! I am one of those guys 🙂

Fresh Fruit Salad with Thai herbs from 101 Cookbooks

best fruit salad top 10

If I had to describe this fruit salad with one word, it would be BEAUTIFUL. It is just beautiful. That kind of salad inspires me to eat healthier, to prepare my meals more carefully, to present them in a beautiful way and to enjoy them slowly. Heidi says you could choose any kinds of fruits, but I personally think the ones she has chosen match perfectly the whole thing. The fruits in her salad are:

  1. Blackberries
  2. Cherries
  3. Nectarines
  4. Loganberries
  5. Pluots
  6. Peaches

That is just a magical combination. Actually if you mix juicy peaches and nectarines with different types of berries, you will achieve that same end-result.

More interesting than the fruits themselves are the other ingredients. Lemongrass, Lemon and lime juice, honey, vanilla, salt, mint, toasted walnuts, yogurt, toasted coconut, dollops of creme fraiche…If you serve your fruit salad with all that, you can be proud of yourself!

Pina Colada Fruit Salad from Averie Cooks

top 10 fresh healthy fruit salad strawberry grapes

I really like fruit salads that are juicy and satisfy your thirst. Because think about it: when is the time you are thinking about a big fruit salad? When it is hot outside, you are walking, you are thirsty and you feel you need something very, very fresh and juicy. At least that is in my case. During the summer I eat fruits for lunch. It just happens that way: I am outside, I am very hot and thirsty. At that time I see the heavy meals as something disgusting. Hamburger? Oh, God, keep that away! I am thirsty! 😁 Please, give me a big, juicy peach!

For that reason I decided to place the Pina Colada Fruit Salad in my Top 10 Fresh Fruit Salad Suggestions. Everything about this salad is grate, except…the non-alcoholic pina colada… 😜 Maybe because I am still breastfeeding and I am not allowed to drink alcohol, I desire it so much! 🙂 But you could experiment with the ingredients, depending on the occasion, I guess. If you make that salad for your children, you add non-alcholic pina colada. If you are making a nice dessert for your guests (who are adults and aren’t breastfeeding:)), you add some alcoholic pina colada. Isn’t it beautiful? To get drunk with a fruit salad? 😂

Mixed Berries Fruit Salad from Life Made Sweeter

top 10 fresh healthy fruit salad lots of berries

This salad says it all: You mix as many berries as you can and you get the best fruit salad ever! Hah 🙂 But seriously, berries are one of the best fruits for fruit salad and you can’t make a mistake with them. I think the most magical thing about Berry Salads is that you can eat them with a spoon. 🙂

Making a Berry Salad is one of the easiest things on planet. Buy the berries, wash them, mix them in a big bowl and add some cool stuff like honey, lemon juice, lemon zest, some seeds and you’re done! Soooo delicious! 😋

Amazing Mohito Fruit Salad from Iowa Girl Eats

blueberry raspberry watermelon fresh healthy fruit dish

It is getting better and better! I can’t even tell you how pleasant I find it to write about so pretty and tasty fruit salads. It is 19.30 right now  here in Bulgaria, my son sleeps on the balcony (I am not joking!), the news are running on the tv and I am looking at these mouthwatering pictures of amazing salads…Let me tell you something: I am hungry! 😃

Now, take a look at this beauty above. Mohito Fruit Salad. Could it be fresher than that? Mohito is the drink I associate with long summer nights, parties at the beach, when I was young and wild. 😉 I mean, Mohito is the best summer drink ever! And to have the opportunity to bring that feeling into a simple fruit salad, that is happiness!

How do you make a Mohito Fruit Salad? It is quite simple. You just mix some summer, juicy fruits with the 3 basic ingredients of the Mohito. You know them, right? 🙂 Here, just in case:

  1. Mint
  2. Lime Juice
  3. Brown Sugar

I know, I know. I am missing the most important ingredient: white rum. But in this case the recipe is non-alcoholic. Don’t you worry! You could fix that problem! 😆

Monochromatic Fruit Salad from A Cup Of Jo

top 10 fresh healthy fruit salad with berries and figs

So, we got to the third place! Do you want to know why I chose this fruit salad to be so close to the winner? Because the article is called Top 10 Fresh Fruit Salads. The summer salads are the freshest salads ever. And one of the most delicious summer fruits is the fig. That is why I chose this salad: because of the juicy, tasty figs, mixed with so many berries. I love dark fruit salads. Black, dark blue, dark red, with a lot of juice…They are very similar to the jam texture, you could grab a spoon of this salad and smash it on a slice of bread. Here you go. You got a natural and healthy jam on bread. Isn’t that the perfect summer breakfast?

Berry Watermelon Fruit Salad from Fork Knife Swoon

blueberry watermelon cherry fruit salad top 10

Second place! Watermelon Berry Fruit Salad! You know already I have a weakness to dark fruit salads :). I really loved this one, because it is super, super simple. There is no dressing here. (Ok, a little bit of lime juice, but actually I would skip the lime juice and just leave it with the fruits. I don’t know, I think they are juicy enough).

But there is one very big BUT here: it is extremely important that the watermelon and the berries are ripe. Because if the salad is not sweet enough, it’s going to loose all the taste.

I liked it how Laura presented the whole recipe, I mean the article is very interesting and emotional, you could take a look at it.

Chile Lime Melon Salad from Smitten Kitchen

top 10 fresh healthy fruit salad with lime melon chili

This is it! The first one! The very best!

Actually I wouldn’t say it is the best fruit salad. As I explained at the beginning, there are lots of fruit salads, which taste delicious. But this salad inspired me the most with its presentation. The idea of cutting the fruit that way, like little ice cream balls, it is just so gorgeous and most importantly: so easy! And if something is super easy and gorgeous at the same time, that means it is genius, am I right? Simple logic again. 😀

This fruit salad is sweet-salty-spicy, something similar like the one from Minimalist baker (the idea for chili in the fruit salad is similar). You know that cheese matches very well melon and watermelon. I won’t give my full review now, because I am going to make a single article only about this beautiful salad recipe! I will share on my social media, when I have it done and then comes the most interesting part of the game…I am going to make my own version of this number one fruit salad and I am going to show it to you! I am really excited how I am going to take this recipe further…Great inspiration!

11 best fruits for fruit salad: with examples!

2 Comments
healthy fresh fruit salad

Maybe you want to make a nice fruit salad and you are asking yourself: “How could I make the best fruit salad? Which fruits should I choose?” Actually it is not easy to find the best fruits for fruit salad. Most of the fruits could be suitable, depending on what they are combined with. But there are some fruits, which are meant to be the best. I don’t know why, seriously. They are the most used fruits, when it comes to fruit salad. And if people use them the most, that means they are the best fruits for fruit salad, right? 🙂

One important note before showing you the list. The fruits are not competing, this is not a rating from 11 to 1 or reverse. That means that number one fruit isn’t better than number eleven fruit. They all are used very often in fruit salads and they all are very combinable with other ingredients.

So, are you ready for the big 11? Sit back and enjoy the material! I found also amazing recipes, which I am giving you as examples to each fruit. They are so, so, so good!

P.S: Don’t forget to vote at the end of the article. We ask you…let me surprise you!

Best fruits for fruit salad:

1.Raspberry

best fruits for fruit salad - raspberry

Raspberries are one of the favorite fruits of most of the people. Maybe because they are not so easy to find like other fruits like apples for example. They are easy to digest and give some extra softness to the taste of the salad. Take a look at these 3 examples for fresh and healthy fruit salad with raspberries:

2. Blueberry

best fruits for fruit salad - blueberry

Very similar to raspberries: harder to find, more expensive, super easy to use, light ans uncomplicated fruit, which fits almost in every fruit salad. Blueberries also make an amazing contrast in the color texture, because most of the other fruits are bright. Two simple and cool recipes for Blueberry Fruit salad here:

3. Strawberry

best fruits for fruit salad - strawberry

Perhaps you were expecting this fruit to show very soon in the listing…:) After the raspberries and blueberries come very logical the strawberries. Actually if I had to determine only one fruit to be the best for fruit salads, this would be “Berries”. They are many fruit salad recipes, which include only berries and nothing else. Could you imagine: a big bowl, full of all kinds of fresh, juicy berries…Heaven!

I found for you 3 easy, fresh fruit salads with strawberries. Check them out:

4. Watermelon

best fruits for fruit salad - watermelon

Watermelon is one of the fruits, which are often used in salty salads as well. You know the epic combination: watermelon, feta cheese and mint, right? This is maybe the best of the best fruits salads in a hot summer day. Watermelon could also be used as a basket , where you put other fruits. There are many variations for cutting and presenting watermelon. It is meant to be a kind of art: cutting watermelon.

I chose 4 tasty, juicy fruit salad dishes with watermelon:

5. Melon

best fruits for fruit salad - melon

Melon is similar to watermelon in the way it could be presented: as a basket with fruits. But its taste is quite different from watermelon’s taste. Choose Golden Honeydew Melon if you want to enjoy a very healthy fruit meal. The best about the melon is that it is a filling fruit, not in the bad way. Put more from it in your summer fruit salad and you won’t feel hungry for the next couple of hours.

Take a look at these two beautiful suggestions for a healthy, fresh fruit salad with melon:

6. Cherries

7. Grapes

best fruits for fruit salad - grapes

You know, grapes is a very special fruit: the fruit of the Gods..But to fit well in your fruit salad, it should be sweet. The sweeter the grapes, the better the salad, keep that in mind. You could also mix different types of grapes in order to give your fresh fruit salad a richer texture.

These two fruit salad recipes with grapes really inspired me:

8. Mandarin

best fruits for fruit salad - mandarin

Lovely fruit, easy to find. Mandarins suit best in fruit salad, while oranges are very often included in salty salads, because of their sour flavor in the taste. Mandarins are sweeter than oranges and are more acceptable from sensitive stomachs.

I found the following 3 fruit salads to be the best examples for a mandarin fruit salad:

Mandarin Apple Banana Fruit Salad from OfficialTashika

9. Banana

best fruits for fruit salad - banana

Surprisingly or not, bananas are not so often being used in fruit salads. Do you know why? Because they are so damn easy to be eaten right away! Just grab a banana and you’re done. 🙂 Why would you ever need to make your life more complicated??

That was a little joke. (I am so funny! :)) Bananas are actually a preferred fruit, when it comes to healthy fruit dishes. They are the “balance guy” in salads that contain too much of sour fruits like apples, oranges, kiwi etc.

Love the next 4 recipes!

10. Fig

best fruits for fruit salad - fig

Fig is a fruit, which deserves so much more appreciation than it actually receives! It is not as popular like pineapple, kiwi, oranges, bananas (should I go on?), but all fruit salad lovers are very familiar with it and know how to use it. The next 3 examples are really good, they give you ideas of how you could combine a specific fruit like the fig:

11. Nectarine

best fruits for fruit salad - nectarine

If the mandarin is a sweeter variation of the orange, nectarine is a sweeter alternative to peach. Peach is also a sour fruit, not that mandarin and nectarine aren’t, but they are a little bit sweeter. You could make very cute salads with nectarine, here is one recipe:

Nectarine Melon Fruit Salad from EatWell101

fresh fruit salad with nectarines

Get the recipe from eatwell101.com.

I know you are asking yourself some questions right now: “Why not kiwi? Why not pineapple? Why not pear and apple?” These fruits are very suitable for salty vegetable salads, that is why I decided to leave them for another listing. Of course, everybody has his own favorite fruits and  ideas for healthy and fresh fruit salads. But these 11 are one of the best fruits for fruit salad.

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time;).
