This fruit salad is simple but full of flavour- which pretty well describes my cooking style! I like when recipes are just a few ingredients and really let the amazing produce be the star of the dish. Simple often means more flavour πŸ™‚

I chose Bosc pears and they are possibly my favourite fruit. I couldn’t help but nibble as I was chopping them for the salad! They’re crisp yet juicy with a mellow sweetness.

What really makes this fruit salad stand out is the balsamic-honey sauce. It’s so unique- we don’t typically think of balsamic vinegar with fruit! I was recently watching a show on the Food Network, a man was in Italy sampling the top quality balsamic vinegar they produce there and he was drizzlingΒ it on absolutely everything- like fresh strawberries! I think I’ll be more adventurous with my balsamic vinegar now since he was right- it makes any food even more delicious!Winter Fruit Salad- This fruit salad is perfect for winter!

  1. What an interesting combination with balsamic vinegar. But I can totally see how sweet (from honey) and sour (from vinegar) flavours really compliment the fruit and make something light, delicious, and refreshing!
