Macedonia de Frutta Fresca | Italian Fruit Salad

I made this for dessert almost daily, using seasonal fruits from the Fruttivendolo, the fruit and vegetable stand just around the corner from my house. Adding the optional Maraschino liqueur transforms this simple dessert into something even more delicious. Use whatever fruits and berries are in season! When I eat this Italian version of fruit salad, I am transported back to Lake Como, where I lived for many years. This healthy dessert pairs deliciously with a bubbly glass of Centanni Passerina Charmat Brut.

1 pint Blueberries

1/2 Lemon. juiced

1/2 Orange, juiced

2 tablespoons Sugar or Sugar Replacement, Optional

2 tablespoons Maraschino Liqueur, Optional


Combine all the ingredients into a bowl.
Let the mixture rest for at least 10 minutes to create a citrusy syrup.
Best served chilled accompanied with biscotti or vanilla gelato.
This salad will be fine in the refrigerator for a couple of days. I like to blitz the leftovers with ice to make a frosty, fruity, Frappé.
