The fruit add a surprising flavor and freshness to this salad, and since it is light and festive, less is more and you don’t need many ingredients. If you don’t have a passionfruit, you can use crushed kiwi instead.
To make the dressing, you just need to place everything in a jug and whisk until it is creamy and thick. Then peel and deseed the cucumber, chop into juliennes. Do the same with pears and apples. Halve the tomatoes. Wash the salad greens and dry in a salad spinner. here you can experiment with the ingredients and adjust the sweetness of the salad.

I’m sure everyone will love these refreshing melon balls with ginger and lemon flavors. This dessert is really easy to make and fun to eat. Start by deseeding the melon and scooping out the flesh. Use melon baller to get round balls. Sprinkle sugar, then add ginger and lemon extract. Chill for 20 minutes and serve.
If you need to extract the juice, you should clean ginger, remove its skin and crush it. Then squeeze into a bowl. One little piece of ginger is enough or it can overpower the melon. Then squeeze lemon into the bowl, mix the juices and keep aside. I recommend making it right before the party because they taste the best while fresh. They are not suitable for meal prep because the juices will destroy the lemon taste.
