The abundance of fresh fruit available especially this summer is heavenly for someone like me who loves fruit. I have fond childhood memories of my mum, who had a fruit stall at the Durban market, arriving home with her basket full of seasonal fruit. This was our daily treats – very different to what is considered treats these days.

It is recommended to eat at least 2-3 servings of fresh fruits every day because of the vitamin content. Fruits are also low in calories which are great when on a weight loss diet.
A fresh fruit salad is very delicious and refreshing served at breakfast or at an end of a meal. When making this salad I cut and slice up whatever seasonal fruit that’s in my fridge but my dressing is always the same.
Lemon juice ¼ cup
Orange juice ½ cup
