No Croutons Required - The Fruit Edition

It's my turn to host No Croutons Required.

This month I would like you to make a soup or salad and add some fruit.

Your soup or salad could be a starter, main course or a dessert. I have added dessert as a suggestion because I love fruit salad and a cold fruit soup would be a gorgeous end to a meal, don't you think?

I can't wait to see how creative you are with this one!

If you would like to join in the challenge, email me at, with a link to your post, photo and details before the 20th September 2008. The challenge rules are here.


Congratulations to Trisha over at The Zest, who made a zingy Blueberry Vinaigrette and won the August challenge which was hosted by Lisa.

You can have a look at the final line-up of dressings here.
