Salad Toppings
Experiment with some of our topping ideas the next time you cut up fruits for a salad.

  • Yogurt: Combine 1 cup Greek yogurt, 1/3 cup honey and a touch of cinnamon to add tang to any fruit.
  • Sweet: Use a small jar of marshmallow fluff mixed with an 8oz package of softened cream cheese for a topping that’s good with all fruit.
  • Poppy seed: Embellish a melon-based salad with a bottle of poppy seed salad dressing.
  • Whipped: Combine whipped cream and vanilla extract for a cool twist on citrus-based salad.

Tip : Pour lemon juice over salads made with pears, apples or bananas to prevent fruits from turning brown when exposed to air.

  • Hollow out lemons and freeze for 1-3 hours before filling and serving.
