Fruits Salad Recipe

5 stars from 2 ratings of Fruit Salad

Homophone Cookin'

I cook tales with too much metaphor

dredge words in too much flower,

Mix truth with lies and super-size

abstractions sweet and sour.


I double-boil mysteries

and reduce the residue,

'Til whodunits are a pasty fend

of well-done "it", and "who".


I tenderize my poetry

that simmers day and night,

In great quatrains of thyme-less broth

Until the bites are write.


For dessert I like a simile

served hot and à lle gory,

Steep leaves of me in imagery

and belch a finished story.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: varies

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Greek plain yogurt
  • 2-4 TBSP. honey
  • 1-2 pats butter
  • Handful chives, diced
  • Handful cilantro, diced
  • Handful mint, diced
  • finger-sized ginger root, peeled & grated
  • 1 avocado, cubed into 1
  • 1 lime or lemon, juice only
  • 2-3 stone fruit, i.e. peaches, apricots, plums, nectarines
  • 2-3 apples or pears
  • 8 oz. grapes of choice, halved
  • 8 oz. strawberries
  • 8 oz blueberries
  • 1 lime or lemon, juice
  • basically any fruit you like except bananas! :), :)

How to Do It:

  1. First, prep all the herbs & avocado cubes. Wash, dry, and dice the cilantro, chives, and mint, reserving a few nice leaves for garnish. Render 1" inch cubes from the avocado & set all of these things aside for now
  2. Peel & grate the ginger.
  3. Melt butter over med-high heat.
  4. Add the ginger.
  5. Add honey to the simmering ginger.
  6. Cook a minute or 2, 'til it looks (and smells!) like toffee.
  7. Remove from heat. Squeeze a lil' lemon (or lime) juice in it now, and allow to cool a bit. Not too much, or it'll try to turn into candy.
  8. Once a bit cooler, add the honey/ginger mix to the plain yogurt, and stir.
  9. Add all the diced herbs to the dressing mixture now, and set aside.
  10. Dice all your freshly washed fruits into 1" inch cubes. Keep the soft whole berries and avocado cubes to one side, as they will be added the very last.
  11. Get a lil assembly line going....
  12. Gently "toss" the fruit cubes around in the dressing, add the avocado cubes and whole berries thereafter, and GENTLY mix these into the salad to avoid smoosh-ery...
  13. Pair with soup, sandwich, quiche or just enjoy it as is! :)
