Mouthful - Fruit salad
SOUPER JENNY: Owner Jenny Levinson’s fruit salad is a tart and slightly sweet mix of pineapple, strawberries, mangoes, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries, which she keeps at room temperature to amplify the flavors of the fruit. But the thing that makes this salad destination-worthy is the dollop of thick and creamy Greek yogurt and drizzled honey that crowns the whole mix. 56 E.

LOTTAFRUTTA: One of the most popular items at Myrna Pyrez’s Old Fourth Ward eatery is her fruit cups. Pyrez draws inspiration from Latin America, where fresh fruit and vegetables are sold on the street with a healthy dose of lime juice and smoky chili powder. Pyrez goes to great lengths to source a wide spectrum of pristine domestic and international produce, which she transforms into fun and filling combinations piled high in towering plastic cups. 590 Auburn Ave. 404-588-0857. www.lottafrutta.com.
METROFRESH: Owner Mitchell Anderson’s fruit salad is always colorful and never mushy. The secret? He layers the fruit instead of mixing it, and stays away from any varieties that might oxidize, like bananas. Instead, the salads combine juicy seasonal fruit with year-round tropical fruits — such as mango and kiwi. 931 Monroe Drive. 404-724-0151. www.metrofreshatl.com.
