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.

  • Juneteenth and the 4th of July is over, but I’m still in a celebratory mood all Summer long! Enjoying all the backyard bbq’s and in this case, “in home bbq” I can muster. .

This recipe is fall off the bone tenderness right in your oven. They taste like your favorite Uncle Rodney bbq these thangs! .
.

Step 1. Buy your favorite type of ribs, I used baby backs here, be sure to ask your butcher to cut the membrane off the backs. It will save you time at home😉 🐄

Step 2. I like to squeeze some lime to cleanse the meat for good measure 🤷🏽‍♀️ 🐄

Step 3. Sprinkle kosher salt and cracked black pepper to season. Sprinkle Paprika, Cajun seasoning (Tony’s will do) and a bit of brown sugar. Rub it in nicely. 🐄

Step 4.  With heavy duty foil paper, wrap the ribs tightly. Place on a baking pan and bake slowly on 250 degrees for 2 1/2-3 hours. When 🐄

My homemade sauce is a bit extensive, too extensive to put in this post ( I’ll blog about at some point).So feel free to slather your favorite BBQ sauce on the ribs once they are done. You could put them back in the oven for 10 minutes more to get the bbq sauce all married into the ribs, or not.

The ends results are tender, fall off the bone, melt in your mouth goodness. Try it!
