Fruit Dishes to Help You Keep Cool This Summer

As summer approaches, temperatures are on the rise. Gone are the days of staying cozy by the fire with a warm cup of tea or a creamy soup. As the weather gets hotter, you're likely looking for something cool to help you fend off the heat. Try out these refreshing summer options that are healthy and full of your favorite fruit.

Easy and Delicious Berry Watermelon Salad

Fresh fruit salad isn't only refreshing, but it's also very easy to make. There's no need to heat up the oven or turn on the stove because you'll simply be washing, peeling, and cutting fruit into a bowl. A tasty option requires that you cube a few cups of watermelon, hull and quarter a pint of strawberries, wash one pint of blueberries, raspberries and half a pint of blackberries. Remember that you can add more or leave out any fruit depending on your preferences and what's locally available. Once you have them all tossed together in a bowl, squeeze some fresh lemon juice over your berries and watermelon for a tangy finish.

Grilled Fruit for Your Barbecue

Grilled fruit may not sound as refreshing as fresh fruit, but combined with the right cold snack you'll be happy you tried it. A foolproof recipe involves grilling cherries and peaches. If you've never grilled fruit before, simply pit the fruit and cut it into large chunks after washing it. Thread the fruit onto skewers and place them on the grill while on medium heat. Once the fruit starts to get soft and grill marks are visible, remove the fruit from the skewers carefully and place it in a bowl. Allow the fruit to cool as you make a delicious dressing for it. You can drizzle plain honey over your fruit or combine butter, honey, and cinnamon in a saucepan for another sweet option. Once your fruit has cooled down, serve it with vanilla ice cream on top and a drizzle of your favorite topping.
