Monochromatic Fruit Salad

Monochromatic Fruit Salad | Pale Yellow

There are days when you want everything to be beautiful.  Beautiful and simple, what a wonderful world!  There are also days when fruit is abundant and fresh, also known as summer.

Monochromatic Fruit Salad | Pale Yellow

Let us combine beauty and fresh fruit into a wonderful, interesting salad!  The idea is simple; taking fruits from a similar color palate and combining them to form a salad.  Here I went with darker fruits (at least on the outside, damn you plums) and tossed them together.  You could do the same with yellow or red fruits.

The lemon and sugar tie all the flavors together and keep the salad fresh.  The dried figs soak up all the lovely juices.  This is not your typical potluck fruit salad, this is a special one!  Enjoy!

Monochromatic Fruit Salad

Adapted from Cup of Jo

Yield - 8-10 servings as a side


1 pint blueberries

1 pint blackberries

8-10 dried black mission figs

3 plums

1 1/2 cups red grapes

8-10 mint leaves, plus more for garnish

1 lemon

2 tablespoon turbinado sugar

  1. Rinse and dry the blueberries and blackberries.  Add to a large bowl.

  2. Chop the figs into quarters and add to the bowl.

  3. Slice the plums, cut the grapes in half, and add to the bowl.

  4. Toss gently.

  5. Chiffonade the mint and zest the lemon.  Add to the bowl.  Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the salad as well.

  6. Sprinkle the sugar on top and toss very gently until all the fruit is coated.

  7. Garnish with extra mint leaves and refrigerate until serving.  Letting the flavors marry for a few hours is an excellent idea!
