All right let's be honest here..
Before, uhm Pinterest came into my life I never, ever cooked or baked anything.
(Well, unless you count toast. I occasionally made toast.)
It's embarrassing, butttt I'm just not all that motivated to make anything edible unless I see a pretty picture of the end result.
Point is, Pinterest changed my life.. and Nadav's life (Yes, I did just say that haha)
Unfortunately, most of the people in my "in-real life" haven't quite comprehended my new love for
Pinterest cooking. Because of this, every time I am invited to a party I ask what should I bring and the answers are always something along the lines of:
"Just buy that pre-made salad bag from Trader Joes. It always tastes so good when you make it"
These days, I've really been trying to work on this and show people that they can ask me to bring something, and it will be
from Pinterest yummy.
Last Friday, I had about two hours before a little get together, no time to bake, and really wanted to bring something that would impress. Naturally, I went straight to Pinterest and found this pretty and (yummy) honey lime fruit salad from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.
It was sooo goodRecipe from Mel's Kitchen
1 (20 oz.) can pineapple chunks, drained well
1 can mandarin oranges, drained well
2-3 ripe kiwi, peeled and sliced into thick half moons
1 cup green grapes, halved
1 cup strawberries, quartered
Zest from one lime, about 1 tablespoon (the lime zest made the salad smell amazing)
2 tablespoons honey
Combine the fruit in a medium-large serving bowl. Add the lime zest and poppy seeds, if using, and gently toss. Drizzle the honey over the fruit and again, gently mix until the fruit is evenly coated with the honey. Serve.
