Something about summer that just screams out fruits. Here are my favourite Appetizers with Fruits perfect for any summer gathering.


With this heatwave sweeping across the continent, the only thing I can think of is spending the day by the pool. Since we have all been in confinement for such a long time, what better way of celebrating the reopening of the economy than by having a pool party or a BBQ with friends and family with whom we haven’t spent much time over the past year and a half. Personally, I love serving fruits at pool parties and BBQs. Something about summer that just screams out fruits. The light sweetness of a peach or refreshing watermelons are so reminiscent of summer. I am also a big believer in reinventing traditional dishes with a twist just to keep things interesting. Fruits are a great way you can dramatically change up a flavour by adding a touch of sweetness to something that is normally savoury dish.


The blogging community is such a wonderfully close-nit community of ideas. In making this new section of my blog, I wanted to dedicate it to all those hard-working, creative bloggers out there who are willing to make themselves vulnerable by sharing their thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world. Our community benefits from people sharing good quality content and I wanted to contribute to the community by sharing what I believe is great ideas and content. Here I have compiled my favourite vegetarian and vegan summer gathering appetizers featuring fruits:
