If you are looking for something fresh and simple but packed full of flavour you need not look any further than a berry-melon salad. A selection of berries in whatever varieties that you enjoy the most including strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are combined with a selection of melon pieces from gala to cantaloupe and even watermelon all mixed together in a lemon and honey yogurt mixture. Why not get a little creative and make this fruit salad for your next dinner party and serve it on the empty shell of the watermelon that you have used in the dish.


A grape salad is a simple take on a waldorf inspired salad and again is incredibly simple to make but packs a lot of flavour. The ingredients are simply grapes in whatever variety and colour that you prefer mixed with a yogurt or crème fresh dressing and topped with walnuts or perhaps some seeds of your choice such as pumpkin or sunflower.


If you are looking for an autumn inspired salad then why not try a combination of apples alongside some dried cranberries and cherries mixed together with a plain vanilla yogurt and again topped with the nuts or seeds of your choice. This one is incredibly popular for taking the simple ingredients with you and whipping up quickly in your lunch hour at work.
