Macedonia

MacedoniaI actually can’t believe that I’ve never ever made such a simple fruit salad (macedonia in Italian) before in my whole life. This week I had a huge surplus of fruit from my Abel & Cole box, so much that I was actually scared some of it might go to waste. So I decided it was about time to make one of my favorite desserts, and started peeling and cutting loads of fruit. You can make this with pretty much any fruit you like, but I strongly recommend sticking to mostly soft fruits (i.e. pears, kiwis, etc.); it just makes the texture much nicer. I personally think that next time I make it I’ll only put pears and bananas, but that’s just because I love pears. Either way, this will take you about 20 minutes and is a great way to make fruit a little more interesting. 

Ingredients (serves 2-4)

  • 2 bananas, peeled
  • 4 pears, peeled
  • 3 kiwis
  • 1-2 blood oranges
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • anything else you like!

Preparation (20 minutes)

Peel everything (except for the lemon), then chop it all up into equally sized cubes. Throw it all together in a bowl, then add the lemon juice and sugar, and stir well. Taste, and perhaps add some more sugar (depending on how sweet you like it). This is delicious when served really cold, so if you have some spare time before it needs to be eaten, I suggest keeping it covered in the fridge until you need it. Enjoy!
