Strawberry, mango, pistachio & marsala fruit salad

Strawberry, mango, pistachio & marsala fruit salad

The colours of this fruit salad are really bright and vibrant and will make you feel as if you are on an exotic holiday without leaving home! If you want to serve the same recipe for children then you could use rosewater instead of Marsala, which is a fortified, sweet white wine, a bit like sherry

  • Preparation: 15 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 200g Sweet Eve strawberries
  • 150g shelled pistachio nuts
  • 2 ripe mangoes
  • 2 ripe peaches
  • Caster sugar for sprinkling
  • A small glass of Marsala, or sherry, or 4 tbsps rosewater.

What you do:

  1. Hull and finely slice the strawberries. Toast the pistachio nuts until slightly browned and releasing their aroma (be careful not to burn the nuts). Finely chop the toasted pistachio nuts.
  2. Peel and finely slice the mango, finely slice the peaches and place into 4 individual serving bowls.
  3. Mix in the strawberry slices and sprinkle a little bit of caster sugar on each serving. Pour a little Marsala, or sherry or rosewater on each portion.
  4. Top each serving with toasted pistachio nuts.
