I got together with some mom friends last night and when I asked the hostess a couple days before the event what I could bring she mentioned fruit salad. Fruit is so fantastic in the summer that there is nothing better than a fruit salad. BUT! I hate when the juicy fruit makes the other fruit all soggy. And some people love kiwi (for example) and others just don’t. What to do?
I thought instead of the usual method of tossing a bunch of different kinds of fruit together in a bowl that instead, I’d assemble it by groups of fruit on a nice platter. I love the oval shape platter for this idea – I got the above stainless steel platter at Crate and Barrel years ago, here’s something similar. It would solve most of the soggy issue and then, if you don’t like a certain kind of fruit you don’t have to take it rather than scoop around it if it was in a fruit salad, right?
Once assembled I thought it was missing something so I sprinkled some lime rind on top for a pop pf color on the mostly red fruit platter.
Delish – enjoy!
