How to prepare Fruit salad
To prepare your fruit salad, start by squeezing a lemon 1 and pouring the juice into a large bowl 2. Add the oil 3 and a pinch of salt.
Emulsify the mixture thoroughly using a whisk 4. Next, prepare the fruit. Cut the nectarine in half and remove the stone 5, then cut into thin slices 6.
Put the nectarine in the bowl and stir 7; the lemon juice will prevent it from oxidizing. Cut the cherries in half and remove the stones 8, then pour them into the bowl, add the blueberries 9, and stir again.
Now turn to the strawberries, removing the stalks and slicing them thinly 10. Add them to the rest of the fruit in the bowl and mix 11. Next, move on to the figs: Wash them and cut off the stalks 12.
Then, without peeling them, cut them into wedges 13 and add them to the bowl before stirring gently once again. Now for the celery: Cut away the whitest, toughest part and peel the stick with a vegetable peeler. Next, cut the stem into small slices and cut the leafy part into larger pieces 14. Add the stick and the leaves to the rest of the fruit 15.
Mix all of the ingredients well 16 and add the peanuts 17. Give it one last stir and transfer your fruit salad into serving bowls 18 or serve straight from the bowl. Your fruit salad is ready to be enjoyed!
This fruit salad is best eaten freshly prepared. If you have any left over, keep it in the refrigerator for up to a day covered with plastic wrap, or in a tightly sealed container. Not recommended for freezing.
Try customizing your fruit salad with your favorite fruits, and make it any time of the year using seasonal fruit. You might also like to enhance it with some bread croutons and a semi-matured goat’s cheese for a delicious and unique dish!
