I’m not sure where this genius idea came from but I wanted to offer my lunch clients a fruit salad. But there was one condition. It actually had to taste good and be of a high quality.
You know those fruit salads you buy and they’re old or have unripe fruit or wayyyy too much honeydew melon (eeek). No offence honeydew, I do love you. But you’re over used.
These types of fruit salads are not cool. They’re not made with love. And that’s not how Lunch Lady Lou rolls.
I wanted to celebrate fruit and super fresh seasonal fruit, in an easy tasty way. Without having to just eat a piece of fruit plain on it’s own. It seems all the winter fruits on offer are kind of ‘built’ to be eaten by themselves – mandarin, orange, apple, kiwi. Or at least that’s how I eat them.
They’re beautiful together, but I just don’t seem to combine them, unless it’s in a jam or a pie…. yum. Definitely need to share some of these recipes with you.
