Mojito Blueberry & Watermelon Salad

Rating: 5 stars 4
Inspired by the classic mojito cocktail, this festive and healthy fruit salad gets zing from rum, lime and mint. The optional piment d'Espelette--a sweet, spicy ground pepper from the Basque region of France--adds a hint of heat that's a nice contrast to the sweet fruit. Look for this spice at specialty stores, well-stocked markets or online. You could also swap in chile-lime seasoning blend (such as Tajín) for a similar subtle kick or omit the spice altogether. Feel free to skip the rum if you prefer an alcohol-free salad. With or without the rum, this salad has summertime backyard BBQ written all over it.

Grapefruit Salad

This colorful grapefruit salad features a wonderful balance of textures and flavors. Pomegranate seeds and onions provide crunch, while avocado lends creaminess, which also works to counter the bitterness of the grapefruit. Use any color of grapefruit, like red, white or pink. If you want to add a layer of greens, peppery greens like arugula or mizuna would work well.
