Icy grapes, apple, kiwi, and melon make up a fruit-based take on "green" salad. A lemon thyme dressing brings the flavors together.


  • 12 ounces green grapes

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup lemon thyme or regular thyme sprigs, coarsely chopped

  • 1 green apple

  • 3 kiwifruits, peeled and sliced

  • 4 to 5 cups honeydew melon balls (from 2 melons)


  1. Freeze grapes on a rimmed baking sheet for 1 hour.

  2. Meanwhile, make the syrup: Bring water and sugar to a simmer in a medium saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and add lemon thyme. Let stand, covered, until cooled completely. Strain syrup through a fine sieve; discard solids.

  3. Thinly slice apple. Divide apple, kiwifruits, melon, and grapes among 8 bowls. Pour syrup over tops just before serving.
