10 dishes with seasonal fruits that you will want to try this summer
It has been several years since the chefs most relevant in the world highlight the importance of enjoying seasonal fruits and vegetables. Whether it’s both from an environmental perspective and from gastronomy itself, this enables us to more authentic flavors. Who doesn’t miss the texture and intensity of a fresh and very red tomato?
With this in mind, we created a list of our 10 favorite fruit dishes. From sweet and salty options, we also add some sweet and sour proposals for those who dare to dishes a little more played.
Aguachile is a typical dish from the Mexican west coast that originally contained a protein, chiltepin chili and water.

Super fresh, light and tasty, to recover from the summer heat and accompany it with more signature tapas from its seasonal menu.
Perfect to have a very power snack, if you visit Paris Crepas you cannot miss trying their special seasonal crêpe with strawberries, peaches, plums, orange or blueberries, covered with a semi-bitter chocolate sauce and a “Paris” cream based on of white chocolate and vanilla, all wrapped in a warm, fine and slightly crispy dough.
If they are from team Salads, Ninina has an incredible one with organic quinoa, kale, roasted pumpkin, feta goat cheese, cranberries, almonds, orange segments and a dressing based on homemade tangerine jam with olive oil, salt and pepper.
