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.
