Fruit salad with peaches jam

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Fruit salad with peaches jam is of the summer food I love most.

The fruit, so juicy and colorful, is a delight and, even at the end of summer, it is really healthy (for the physical and the mood) to create rich fruit salads to make a real stock of vitamins (C, in particular) in view of the cold months.

This macedonia is made with Sicilian mango (now, in Sicily, even for climate change, it is possible to grow mango and avocado) and freshly harvested grapes. The peach jam, a pinch of cinnamon and some basil leaves are a delightful touch for a scented salad, just like a few.
