During the summers of my childhood, I’d often help my mom throw together a fruit salad to be served as a side during cookouts, picnics, and potlucks. With a variety of fresh fruits and a rich dressing, they were often my favorite part of the meal–I was a fiend for sugar. Now, it boggles my mind that we ever thought fruit couldn’t stand up well on its own. These days, my fruit salads let the natural sugars in fruit take charge, using just a tiny bit of honey or jam with a splash of citrus to add a little depth. This Clementine Fruit Salad with Cherries is one of my favorites, especially when clementines are on sale in early spring or cherries come into season a bit later in the year. Use sweet or tart cherries depending on your preference and get the kids to help throw the whole thing together for a fun family treat, whether you’re eating indoors or out.
