Refreshing Sweet and Sour Fruit Salad For Summer

This sweet and sour fruit salad is a refreshing lunch any time of the year, but it’s especially good in summer when temperatures heat up and fruit is fresh and perfect. The great thing is that it’s not only healthy and low in fat and calories, it’s also totally easy to customise with whatever fruit is in season or whatever you prefer! This is a semi-savoury fruit salad, so it makes a great lunch. You could also add some pre-cooked chicken to make it even heartier, or perhaps some blue cheese or feta cheese.

You don’t have to measure the ingredients for the salad. Just throw them into your bowl in whatever quantities looks good to you. It’s extremely forgiving!

For the dressing, I go light on the oil to keep it lower in fat and calories.
