Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dip

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dip
 
The standout “star” in this flavorful fruit salad is the addition of Cotton Candy® grapes. This newer, super sweet variety delivers a very distinctive flavor worthy of its memory-invoking name. For the best presentation, do not add the strawberries to the salad until right before serving. Otherwise, the lighter-colored fruits will absorb their bright red color. To prevent browning, slice and add kiwi to the bowl right before serving, as well. Note: Cotton Candy® grapes are not a genetically modified food. Instead, their wonderful taste is the result of selective natural cross-breeding practices conducted over many years.
Ingredients
  • For the Yogurt Dip:
  • 1 c. plain, full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 T. honey
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • For the Fruit Salad:
  • 1 c. seedless green grapes, washed and halved
  • 1 c. fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks
  • ¼ c. fresh pineapple juice
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 T. fresh lime juice
  • 2 T. fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Optional: 1 T. honey
  • 1 c. fresh strawberries, hulled and cut into chunks
  • 2 large fresh kiwi, peeled, halved, and sliced
Instructions
  1. Prepare yogurt dip by combining all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. To assemble fruit salad, combine prepared grapes, pineapple, and mango in a large glass or other non-reactive bowl. Add pineapple juice, lime zest and juice, and mint to bowl and toss to combine.
  3. For additional sweetness, drizzle mixture with honey and gently stir to combine, if desired.
  4. Chill fruit mixture in refrigerator for at least one hour. Place prepared strawberries in a separate container to chill at the same time.
  5. Once chilled, remove fruit salad and strawberries from refrigerator and add strawberries and freshly sliced kiwi to the bowl. Gently stir to combine and serve immediately with honey-yogurt dip.
Notes
*If possible, use Cotton Candy® green grapes
**zest lime before juicing

Spicy Peach Salsa

Spicy Peach Salsa
 
This spicy peach salsa is absolutely gorgeous! The combination of colors creates a beautiful presentation, while the delicious blend of sweet and spicy flavors makes it a wonderful addition to simply prepared fish, chicken or pork dishes. This one is a keeper, for sure!
Ingredients
  • 6 fresh peaches, pits removed and cut into small pieces
  • 3 T. fresh lime juice
  • ½ medium shallot, minced
  • 3 T. red onion, cut into small, thin slices
  • 1-2 t. jalapeno peppers, seeds and veins removed, and very finely minced
  • 3 T. fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed and chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and stir to combine. (Start with a very small amount of jalapeno pepper and taste before adding more). Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight or on the counter at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Serve with foil packet citrusy orange roughy or other minimally seasoned fish, chicken or pork recipe. This can also be served in place of regular salsa with tortilla chips.
Notes
Tip: Soak the red onion in a cup of water for 10-15 minutes before using to reduce its strong flavor and odor.

For best results, make this salsa the night before serving so the flavors have a chance to blend. This will also soften the peaches and onion to a nice consistency.

Easy Formula For Building Your Smoothie Bowl

 

Easy Formula For Building Your Smoothie Bowl

A smoothie bowl, also known as an acai bowl, provides all the healthiest smoothie ingredients you are used to, in a thicker smoothie with delicious toppings. It not only changes the way you eat smoothies, but is great for replacing other breakfast items like cereal or oatmeal, but providing just as many nutrients. Here is an easy formula to follow when building the perfect smoothie bowl.

Start With Your Fruit or Veggies

Like all smoothies, you want to start by choosing your fruits and veggies. Vegetables don’t need to be included in every smoothie, but adding some kale or spinach is a good idea when you want a greens smoothie or simply one with added nutrition. For the fruit, try to choose frozen fruit, since it helps to thicken up the smoothie and keeps it from turning to a thin liquid too quickly. You want your smoothie bowl to be nice and thick so it is easy to eat with a spoon. While you can use any fruits you want, here are some popular options:

* Bananas
* Strawberries
* Blueberries or raspberries
* Mango
* Honeydew melon
* Watermelon
* Papaya
* Cantaloupe
* Cherries
* Apples
* Oranges or lemons
* Pomegranates
* Mangos

Add in a Thickening Ingredient

Next up is the thickening ingredient! Many people choose to make this their main source of protein in the smoothie base, such as yogurt, protein powder, or even tofu if you like it. Nut butter is also an excellent choice, such as peanut butter or almond butter. You can also make this a traditional acai bowl by adding an acai packet to the base. These either come in a freeze-dried powder or frozen smoothie pack, which help add nutrition, flavor, color, and thickening to the smoothie. You can usually find them at health food stores, though your regular grocery store might also have them.

Choose Your Liquids

All smoothies need at least a little liquid since it helps the blender to break up the fruit and other ingredients. Just be sure to add less liquid than you normally would for a smoothie. If you are watching the sugar and calorie content of the smoothie base, using water works just fine. You can also use coconut water or coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk, or any type of dairy liquid. You may also want to use some fruit juice for added flavor, but be careful not to add too much. If you end up adding a little too much liquid, just add in more fruit and thickening ingredient.

Top it Off!

The last step of the smoothie bowl formula is the topping! You can use one or multiple toppings, depending on how you want to present the bowl. Many bowls use a sprinkle of chia seeds for the interest in color and texture, along with cacao nibs, muesli, granola, or shredded coconut. Any type of nuts or seeds work really well for the top of smoothie bowls, as well as berries and other sliced fruit.
