Summer of Salads continues this week in fruity fashion with Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Bean. Cute, sweet, and great for parties!

Kiwi fruit is ridiculously appealing. Have you noticed that? They are palm-sized and fuzzy, with a bright green medallion pattern in the center. Plus they are sweet, tangy, and totally irresistible.

I think that’s why kids love them so much. Every time I bring home a bag of kiwi from the grocery store, they disappear from the fruit bowl faster than anything else.

My kids will cut them in half and scoop out the tender flesh with a spoon, leaving fuzzy little brown cups laying on the counter. It made me wonder why these cups couldn’t be used as a vessel to serve a festive summer treats like my summer fruity mix, Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Bean.

I absolutely love this petite fruit salad with fresh diced kiwi, pineapple, mango and strawberry. Those four fruits are fabulous tossed together as-is. However, today I’ve amped up the flavor of this fruit salad by adding fresh chopped mint and the seeds of one fresh Tahitian vanilla bean.

The combination of the cool mint flavor and the bold vanilla essence, with the tropical fruits, is soooo inviting. You can serve this Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Bean in small ramekins or hollow out additional kiwi for festive edible cups!

Turning kiwi into edible cups is easy to do.

Simply shave the bottom flat so each kiwi can stand on end. Then slice off the top to open up each kiwi. You can use the tops as little lids or discard.

Then using a spoon, carefully scoop out the flesh leaving a deep well in the center of each kiwi.

Make sure not to scoop all the way to the bottom; you need a base for the Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Bean to sit on.
