There is nothing more I love than a fresh, colourful salad in the summer time with juicy bits aplenty. Nature really does gift us the goods over the summer time, when it comes to flavour and colour, doesn’t she?
A friend asked me to bring something ‘Red’ to a recent lunch, and so the savoury fruit salad was born out of that. I had strawberries, tomatoes, pomegranates from Mum so I built from them and created this one.

It had purple basil, green basil, tomato, raspberry, pomegranate, strawberries, roasted pine nuts and a simple olive oil and lemon dressing.
We loved it so much, I made another savoury fruit salad a week later back home in Sydney, this time with incredible peaches, along with more delicious fresh herbs. Here’s the simple recipe. Hope you enjoy it.
That’s it. Delicious with roast chook, steamed fish or for a vegetarian, a bit of goat’s fetta sprinkled over the top.
I hope you enjoy it. If you fancy more salad inspiration, head to…
