fruit salad macedonia 01.jpg
Fresh seasonal fruit makes an easy instant dessert for any occasion. Macedonia Italian FRUIT SALAD is a region in the Balkans, where many different populations live together. Maybe this is the reason for the name of this dessert, which features all sorts of different fruits together. There is no particular rule: any kind of fruit in season can be used. If you want a more exotic taste, tropical fruits can be used (mango, papaya, pineapple, etc.); for a more domestic taste, use the types available at the farmers’ market. Fruit salad can be flavored with lemon, sweet wine, or liquor depending on personal taste.

about 1 lb (450 g) of any seasonal fruit available, berries, peaches, cherries, apricots, etc.
4 tablespoons sugar
the juice of one lemon
1 banana, peeled and sliced

Wash, core, and dice the fruit.
Transfer all the fruit in a bowl of adequate size and add the sugar and the lemon juice.
Combine everything together well, and place the dish in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Slice the banana and combine it with the rest of the fruit before seving.
Serve in single serving bowls.
Eventually top with freshly whipped cream.
