|Not sure what to do with that head of lettuce or bag of salad greens? Want some inspiration beyond croutons and grated cheese? Fruit can go a long way toward helping your salad sing.
Everyday fruits such as apples, grapes, oranges and grapefruit, are excellent ingredients. But you can follow your palate and add anything from seasonal fruits to exotics such as star fruit. Here’s an easy yet absolutely delicious salad recipe:
Our fruit-accented salad pairs well with
1. Sauté grapes in a pan over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until the grape skins wrinkle.
2. Mix apples with grapes and any citrus fruits you’re including in the salad. The acid from oranges or grapefruit will keep the apples from oxidizing and turning brown. Otherwise, toss the sliced apples in some lemon juice, or wait until the last minute to slice them.
3. Stir all other ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Do not season with salt and pepper and do not dress until ready to serve.
4. When ready to serve, add fruit, season with salt and pepper and dress with your favorite vinaigrette. Toss and serve.
