Melon Fruit Salad

I love a fresh fruit salad. When fresh fruit is sitting in the fridge it's easy to forget to use it before it spoils.  I think my family is more likely to snack on fruits and veges that have been prepared in advance.   As the warm spring weather approaches, it's a great way to enjoy fresh seasonal fruit. There is a little preparation involved, about 30 minutes to cut and prepare the fresh fruit.  As pictured this fruit salad has approximately 184 calories.

Melon Fruit Salad

3 cups peeled and chopped peaches
1 cup fresh mozzarella part skim cheese balls, cut in half
1 Tablespoon fresh basil
4 cups seeded watermelon
4 cups honeydew melon
3 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups seedless red grapes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Slice and chop fresh fruit. Slice mozzarella cheese balls. Fruit salad can be served with some plain yogurt or as is.  Yields 10 servings at 184 calories/each.

Slice the red grapes in half.

Slice the red strawberries.

Slice the peaches in small pieces.

Slice the honey dew melon in small pieces.

Slice the watermelon in small chunks.

Slice the mozzarella cheese balls in half.

I used a spice grinder to chop the fresh basil.

Combine the fresh fruit in a large bowl with the fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and walnuts.  Stir to combine.

Serves 10 at approximately 184 calories/serving.
