Fruit Salad

At its simplest, fruit salad is a supereasy dish that hardly requires a recipe. Just chop up your favorite fruits, mix them together in a bowl and serve them at your next cookout of picnic. But if you do want to get a little more creative, Food & Wine can help. We have recipes like a tropical kiwi, banana and passion fruit salad from chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten or chef Grant Achatz's beautiful watermelon salad with shrimp. These fruit salad options can fit in at any course, from the starter to the dessert.

Ambrosia Salad
Many ambrosia salads include only canned fruit, but here we mix fresh—oranges, grapefruit, pineapple and kiwi—with jarred maraschino cherries and canned mandarin orange segments for a brighter taste. Feel free to use whatever combination of fruit’s on hand. We like a ratio of about 5 cups fruit to 2 cups whipped cream. Slideshow: More Fruit Salad Recipes

Grappa originated in Friuli in the 15th century, and it's still very popular in the region. It adds a bit of a boozy punch to fruit salad. You can use any mix of fruit you like and any sorbet, though a tart citrus one works especially well. Slideshow:  More Fruit Salads
