Strawberry Fruit Salads

Fruit salads are one of the most obvious recipes you come up with when thinking what to do with your strawberries.


Below I share my three favorite strawberry fruit salads with you. Each one has a unique twist, something that makes the recipe stand out and earn you lots of compliments from family and friends.


Strawberry Salad with Cream and Cheese

Strawberry Fruit Salad with Cream and Cheese

Before you tell me that I'm crazy, at least try this recipe! It is my all-time favorite. I brought that idea from South America, where it's quite common.

Adding cheese may seem strange at first, but I can assure you it will make the fruit salads so much more savory. Even my husband had to acknowledge that.

He asked me bewildered "You didn't really put cheese on that, did you?!"  It took me a great deal of convincing to make him at least try the salad, but once he did, he wouldn't stop eating until the whole bowl was empty :-)

Usually I use mild cheese like Gouda, but recently I was too lazy to go shopping and the only cheese we had in the fridge was Parmesan. Guess what? It tastes heavenly! If you like Parmesan, that is....


Ingredients

  • 2 cups cream
  • 3 tablespoons honey 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/2 pint fresh strawberries
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 pint grapes  (preferably seedless)
  • 2 peaches 
  • 1/2 cantaloupe
  • 2 ounces Gouda cheese

Directions

Cut strawberries in quarters. Slice bananas, peaches and cantaloupe in 1/2-inch pieces. You can peel the beaches if you wish to, but I never do.

If you have small grapes, leave them whole, bigger ones should be cut into halves. Grate the cheese.

In a large bowl, combine cream, honey and cinnamon. Add grated cheese, keeping 1 teaspoon per person for garnish. Add fruits to the sauce. Carefully mix everything.

Chill before serving for at least 30 minutes. Fill into small eating bowls.

Sprinkle each bowl with grated cheese just before serving.
