Here’s a fruit salad that’s not for everyone. Grapes, blueberries, a little fresh tarragon, a little honey and blue cheese. I can practically hear Yummy Chunklet going “eww” from here. I wanted to share some other fruit ideas from some of our favorite blogs, because it is summer and all the world’s your peach pit. Hmm, think I messed up that saying. Here’s an a la carte menu.
Need a starter or light meal? Over at The Orange Bee we were quite taken with the “girly gazpacho.” Or check out Food Is Therapy’s prosciutto and melon salad with balsamic and basil?
For dessert: Check out these poached peaches over at Camerahols/Food Photography and France; or these grilled champagne and mascarpone peaches from The Life of A Housewife (Minus the Kids & Husband). Peaches not your thing? How about this pineapple ice cream treat over at Eat, Play, Love? Toasted, syrupy goodness! Or maybe a cherry mousse and pie from Cooking in Sens is in order.
Oops, I almost forgot the pie. Check out these strawberry rhubarb hand pies at Kitchen Bellelicious. Makes me glad I have two hands.
Last, but certainly not least, Judy over at The Southern Lady Cooks humbled me recently by giving me a number of awards. Although, Katherine might dispute anyone calling me stylish, I’ll graciously accept them. Thanks, Southern Lady! If you haven’t seen her blog, go check it out. If you have, well go back. Her deep dish blackberry cobbler alone is worth the visit. She might even serve up a mint julep.
