Bonita’s Simple, Fresh Fruit Salad

Salad season is upon us in a big way and if you’re like me I love-making the most out of it. A salad is not limited to just lettuce and tomato, fruits can be a spectacular salad hence making it a fruit salad.

Fruit

Colorful and delicious fruit salad.

What elevates this fruit salad is the wonderful dressing that accompanies it so well.

For the dressing I use one lime squeezed, half of a naval orange, agave nectar, cardamom. Simple and quite luscious.

This salad is ideal for any sort of gathering. Think a wedding, brunch gathering, a tea party, or in a big bowl at home on a Saturday morning. Tasty all by itself, but even more delightful as a topping on a nice slice of cake!

However you choose to enjoy this fruit salad trust me you’ll be making this for the entire summer!

I cannot stress enough how buying local produce is so much better, and 100% more delectable. I can I tell you that blueberries and nectarines are out of sight! Right now. So, do yourself a solid and visit your local grocery are farm stand and load up on these spring/summer fruits.

When you buy fruit in their season these are the times they are sweetest. Buy them in bulk and freeze them to use in any season they will be just as fresh as the day you purchased them.

OK, now that you’re drooling make your list, and make this fruit salad. And tell me all about it on Instagram and be sure to tag #bonitaapplecrumb so that I can shot you out for making and taking such a lovely fruit salad.

  • 36 hour turkey bath = Juicy, flavorful, and tender to the bone turkey. For my brine I used Homemade vegetable stock, water, Hawaiian Chile sea salt, Aleppo pepper, sugar, sweet peppers, and 3 types of Chile’s, cilantro, onion, thyme and pink peppercorns. Submerge turkey into the brine, cover and fridge for a day or two. .

  • The perfect gumbo is all in the roux and of coarse the ingredients such as: Finely chopped seasonings known as the trinity, blue crab, gulf shrimp, andouille sausage, chicken and spices. The best gumbo I ever ate in my life came from a little old lady in Lafayette Louisiana, my goodness it was great. I’ve attempted over many years to recreate that taste and I have nailed it to the wall with this one. Gumbo is work y’all, but I promise it’s worth it. Recipe coming soon❤️ .

  • It’s cold and the gumbo is hot! Truly gumbo season is all year long in my book, but there’s something about 30 degree weather and gumbo that makes it taste even better 🍛 I will be sharing this recipe soon, gumbo is totally worth the work. .
