With bountiful produce available all year round, I make fruit salads at least once a week. Of course, in the summer more varieties are available but South America is sending fruit our way all year round. Add cottage cheese and The Man is one happy, happy, happy swooner.
Generally I prepare the fruit, sprinkle a little salt and freshly ground pepper on top, throw in a handful of nuts, add a scoop of cottage cheese and serve. Healthy fare and easy to prepare. After a long day slinging cheese, easy is exactly what I like, especially when it’s also tasty.
Recently I was given a bottle of O Orange Blossom Champagne Vinegar and for this fruit salad, I decided to flavor it using the vinegar. Wow!! What a difference the orange blossom makes; adding a layer of delicate orange to the salad…
This vinegar is made using California orange blossoms that are crushed and steeped with Muscat and Champagne grapes. Barrel-Aged slowly in small batches. It’s all natural; nothing artificial.
The fruit salad was fabulous. It was a large salad that usually means leftovers for the next day… not this time. The Man I finished it off in one sitting. The orange blossom made this salad irresistible, refreshing and tasty…
The Man suggested that his next screwdriver might include a splash of this champagne vinegar; adding a little extra flavor to the OJ.
Next time, I’ll make a garden salad of leafy veggies with crumbled Long Clawson Lemon Zest Stilton and toss it with the Orange Blossom Vinegar and a little EVOO; I suspect it will be refreshing and tasty.
