If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, it’d be fruit salad. The combinations are aplenty, they’re healthy, refreshing and gosh darnit they’re pretty! Up until this moment, I had never considered creating a melon ball salad, but there’s a good chance that Rikki Snyder‘s version will be on heavy rotation from here on out. Oh, and if you missed the spring brunch that went along with this dish, it’s all right here.
