Alton Brown's Fruit Salad
Vanilla extract is strong stuff and large doses that takes over whatever team it’s supposed to be playing for. It’s small doses however that becomes a subtle agents of unification casing point a humble fruit salad. I have here 1 Granny Smith apple cored and diced, 1 cup of seedless grape halve 1 pear peeled, cored and diced 10 to 12 medium strawberries halved 1 mango peeled and diced, 1 banana sliced and 1/3 of a cup of toasted chop walnuts.
Now if I just mix this all together we’ll have ourselves a very nice salad. You know here’s the thing about fruit salad. A lot of these flavors don’t really get along with each other and of course it’s actually kind of hard to eat. Vanilla extract with some friends wil rescue us. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of honey just squeeze that right out of the pears head and approximate, about a ¼ teaspoon of salt, a few grinds pepper ½ cup of plain yogurt and ¼ cup of mayonnaise stir to combine. There and I think a little more black pepper would be a good thing.
Now this is a fruit salad that actually stays nicely on the fork. It taste fabulous could that be a dessert, it could be heck it could be a meal by itself, it could be a salad whatever you want and If you keep it covered, it will keep up to a week in the refrigerator.
