I’m back…. we got a bit busy outside… yes, I was gardening again but I also ended up not feeling well because of the heat and my own stupidity of not wearing a hat out when I was doing my planting. I gave in and bought an ugly but effective hat from the dollar store so hopefully I can avoid this in future.
The weather has been so hot the past week that I figured it was the perfect time to make a few salads… one being this refreshing fresh fruit salad!
Here are the ingredients I used…. I think I even remembered them all for the picture lol.
To begin, I halved the grapes and then peeled the orange and halved the segments, placing them in a large bowl.
Next came the pomegranate, it’s been a long time since I have removed the fruit from one so I had to give myself a quick google reminder!
I took pictures as I went in case anyone else needs a reminder about how to deal with a pomegranate!
The first thing I did was to cut into the “flower” end of the pomegranate. I inserted my paring knife and cut a cone shaped piece out of that end.
Next, I scored around the whole fruit, trying to place the scoring on each “flat” section of the fruit.
Finally I pulled the sections apart and tapped the skin side of the fruit to knock out the arils, before placing them in the bowl with the oranges and grapes.
Next I washed and diced the green apple and added it to my bowl.
I added the sliced banana, lime juice and sugar and mixed before serving. We had a colourful and very refreshing dessert salad to finish off a nice BBQ dinner!
