Red Fruit Salad

While this is great shortly after tossing all ingredients together, it's also wonderful a day or so after - as the fruit continues to macerate.


  • 1 pound cherries, pitted*
  • 1 pound strawberries, cored
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon whole coriander seeds, or more to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons natural cane sugar (or brown sugar)
  • bit of lemon zest, bit of fresh lemon juice


Prepare the Fruit

  1. Tear most of the cherries in half, and leave the remaining cherries whole. Place in a large bowl with strawberries.

Make the Coriander Sugar

  1. Toast the coriander seeds until fragrant in a dry skillet, then crush in a mortar and pestle until finely ground. Work the sugar into the coriander one tablespoon at a time. 

Assemble the Fruit Salad

  1. Sprinkle the mixture over the fruit along with the lemon zest, and toss gently with your hands. Season with a bit of lemon juice, set aside for at least ten minutes, and enjoy.
