No-Cook Summer Recipes Featuring Cool, Sweet Fruit

By Len Canter
HealthDay Reporter

TUESDAY, June 18, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Sweet summer fruits make a luscious ending to a meal, but there's no reason to limit them to dessert. Here are three fruity no-cook dishes that will please every palate.

For a sauce with a special flavor punch, add chopped fresh cherries to your favorite salsa recipe. Cherries are loaded with anthocyanins, an antioxidant with a deep red color, and their sweetness gives salsa an added layer of flavor. Try it with grilled chicken or shrimp for a sweet and spicy kick.

Love cantaloupe? Pair it with thinly sliced prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and mint. The melon's sweetness is a great way to balance the saltiness of prosciutto for a filling low-cal appetizer or lunch dish.

Is juicy watermelon more to your liking? It's high in vitamins A and C and the antioxidant lycopene. The deeper the melon's red hue, the more nutrients it has. Its flavor really pops when paired with tangy feta cheese, a good source of calcium.

Watermelon Salad

  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 4 cups watermelon chunks
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Arrange spinach on a platter and top with the watermelon. Sprinkle on feta, jalapeno and basil. Drizzle with the oil, and season with salt and pepper as desired.

Yield: 4 servings
