On a warm summer afternoon, a sweet and juicy fruit salad can be the perfect treat. From The Garden-Fresh Cookbook, here’s a recipe for a fruit salad that mixes tropical fruit and edible flowers (and optional orange liqueur) for a truly sophisticated dish!
Fruit Salad With Pineapple Sage
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
• 2 kiwifruit, peeled
• 2 cups pineapple chunks
• 2 bananas
• 1 orange, peeled and separated into segments
• ½ cup orange juice
• ½ cup Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur (optional)
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• ¼ cup pineapple sage flowers
Cut the fruit into bite-size chunks and place in a large bowl, along with any juice that is generated. Add the remaining ingredients and mix gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
