Sweet & Savory Summer Fruit Salad

Summer Fruit Salad

At the height of the summer, I love taking advantage of all of the in-season produce, and that's exactly what this recipe does! This Sweet & Savory Summer Fruit Salad is light and fresh, perfect for these hot and humid days, and it hits all of those cravings with peaches and watermelon paired with feta cheese for that savory kick! With just a few ingredients you can pick up from your local grocery store or farmers market, this salad packs a big flavor punch! I love, too, that all the ingredients have different textures that come together so well in this dish. Not only is this fruit salad delicious, but it's so easy to throw together, and it travels well. I wanted to enjoy some of these summer days outside, so I brought some with me for a picnic in the park -- it was the perfect pick me up!

Summer Fruit Salad

I packed it all up in my Ello 3 Cup Glass Meal Prep Bowl, one of my favorite containers for storing and transporting food. I find that it's the perfect size, and I love how durable and easy to clean it is. The silicone sleeve not only adds a layer of protection, but also a pretty pop of color! The lid clicks into place with locking tabs, so I never have to worry about leaks or spills. And the best part is that everything is dishwasher and freezer safe! The bowls even match the Ello Cru Wine Glasses, which have been my go-to this summer for drinks on the patio.
