Don't you just love/hate to come home and smell BBQ cooking in the air? I am having a heyday with all the fresh seasonal fruit available. It seems that almost every night we are having a version of my most favorite of all time fruit salads. Why is it my favorite? Because it tastes like fruit candy. People ask what did you do to this fruit but they are never really sure if you did anything or if they just wandered into fruit nirvana.
So. In honor of warm days, pot luck dinners, and reasonless come on overs - here it is. It is really flexible, so be flexible. Use what you have or what is on sale. You will love it!
Midodi's Ultimate Fruit Salad
Brown Sugar (2 T. or less to taste)
almond extract (1/4 t.-1/2 t.)
Combination of fresh fruits like the following:
In a large serving bowl, combine chopped fruit. Sprinkle with brown sugar and almond extract. Toss. Let sit and meld for 5-10 minutes. Stir again. If adding bananas or kiwi, add just before serving.
Obviously, I love you all.
