summer harvest fruit salad

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of research to get better at food photography (which is so much harder than I ever thought it could be), and trying out new apps. Well, after I made this salad, I attempted to take some pics, and as soon as I got back to my computer, it turned out I had no idea how to use my chosen app, and all of those pics I thought I took didn’t even save.

Luckily, this recipe is really simple, and I only feel like I should share it because 1) there’s a mega heatwave and no-bake foods are so necessary 2) it’s sorta unusual.

So, here’s your sad pic that saved.

And here’s your recipe for a summer harvest fruit salad:

Summer Harvest Fruit Salad

What You Need:

1 ripe watermelon (cut in bite sized cubes or us a melon baller)

1 carton yellow tomatoes

1 carton blueberries

3 handfuls of spinach (optional)

What You Do:

Wash and mix toss together

If using spinach, I also added some salt and black pepper because why not?

 

Now, there aren’t any confusing or tricky parts to this except for choosing a ripe watermelon. If you were fortunate, like I was this time around, then save the excess juice from your watermelon. I had some cinnamon basil on hand so I muddled the juice with the herb, then added two parts vodka, one part juice/herbs, and one part water (or soda water). And voila! A fresh, nameless summer drink to go with your salad.

Messiness: Cutting fruit can get messy, which is why I opted to just use a melon baller. Also, it helped keep the watermelon juice nicely in the hollowed half so I could pour it into my drink.

Budget: As usual, I got all of these ingredients (minus the vodka) at the 99 Cent store, but in general these shouldn’t cost too much since everything is in season.

Simplicity: Are you ready to do the easiest thing you’ll do all day? Cool, then make this. 🙂

Deliciousness: I know what you’re thinking: Tomato? Really? Yes, really. These yellow ones are so sweet and juicy, they complement the fruity flavors well.

 

Sorry about the horrible, one picture. I’ll keep trying to improve… and any tips are welcome!
