  • Prepare fresh fruit salad within an hour of serving to maximise flavour, texture and nutrients. Some salads benefit from a little chilling time (about 30-60 minutes) for the various flavours to mingle well together.
  • Wash all fruits thoroughly under cold running water before cutting or eating whole. This includes those fruits with hard shells or skins, such as melons. Wash your hands before and after handling fresh fruits.
  • Leave on peels whenever possible. The peels of apples, pears and most fruits with pits add interesting colour and texture to recipes. These also have immense amount of nutrients.
  • Remove zest from citrus peels before discarding and save it for other recipes. The zest is the thin, brightly coloured, outermost layer of citrus fruit, such as lemons or oranges. Grated or shredded, it adds freshness along with a bright spark of flavour and enhances the colour of both sweet and savoury dishes.
