Strawberry Melon Fruit Salad with Creamy Citrus Glaze will be your go-to spring/summer potluck side that will be gone in minutes! Its so cool and refreshing withe the BEST GLAZE and perfect combo of beloved melons, strawberries, bananas, apples and grapes!
Spring is in the air! Once Spring hits, it feels like summer is here in a flash and then for us Carlsbadians its beach days and bonfires and paddle boarding and POTLUCKS! Which of course means fruit salad! I looove fruit salad from my winter varieties of Tropical Winter Fruit Salad, and Winter Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Poppy Seed Dressing to my spring/summer varieties of Pina Colada Fruit Salad, Watermelon Pineapple Fruit Salad and now this Strawberry Melon Fruit Salad!
This Strawberry Melon Fruit Salad with Creamy Citrus Glaze is perfect for all your spring/summer potlucks and barbecues (as well as Easter!) ! Its wonderfully simple yet refreshingly delicious packed with an incredible harmony of melons and fruit and the Creamy Citrus Glaze makes it taste extra gourmet AKA you will have everyone begging for the recipe.
I especially love this Strawberry Melon Fruit Salad for gatherings because its as easy as chopping fruit and whisking a few ingredients together and almost all of it (save the bananas and apples) can be done AHEAD OF TIME!
Our summery ensemble of fruit includes watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, red grapes, green grapes, apples and bananas. I find this particular cast of characters delightfully balanced and refreshing, but feel free to mix it up however you please. You’ll just want to add more or less of the Citrus Glaze depending on how much fruit you end up with.
The light yet Creamy Citrus Glaze is a quick whisking of orange juice concentrate, lemon juice, vanilla pudding mix, powdered sugar and sour cream for a balanced sweet and tangy Glaze that compliments and heightens all the natural fruit flavors without overwhelming them. It just adds that little extra “oomph” that earns you compliments on this Melon Fruit Salad wherever you take it.
One quick note about the Creamy Citrus Glaze. Because this is a Melon Fruit Salad – melons release a lot of juice after they are cut so you are going to want to refrigerate your chopped fruit to get them nice and chilled separately from your Citrus Glaze. So if you are bringing this Strawberry Melon Fruit Salad to a gathering, bring the Glaze and the Fruit Salad separately, drain off any excess melon fruit juices and then combine it with the Glaze. Follow this simple guideline and you will have the talk of the party Strawberry Melon Fruit Salad. every. single. time. Happy potlucking!
