We love a sprinkle of salty cheese or a handful of freshly-chopped herbs to bring out the juicy sweetness of melon, berries, mango, and other fruit. Our favorite fruit salad recipes pair ripe, complementary summer fruits with unexpected savory ingredients—crunchy black peppercorns, earthy sesame oil, a dusting of chile powder—for a new twist on the classic brunch and picnic staple.
