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.
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.
