Fruit Salads: Topped With Creme Fraiche or In Fresh Cream

Written By Srimathi Mani on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 | 8:45 AM

Farmer's market is so colorful these days. Strawberries, blueberries, apricots, cherries, oranges, raspberries, nectarines, peaches are so fresh and cry out to be added to the shopping bag. We have been hooked on strawberries that are the sweetest that I have ever tasted. Apricots are very juicy and sweet too.This weekend we had friends over for lunch and I prepared the simple fruit salad and served it with creme fraiche. It was absolutely delicious and fresh as fresh can be. Sometimes, it best to serve simple food when we have company and you have the best fruit on hand.

Gadgets:

Cutting Board
Knife
Bowls
Spoons

Fruit Salad Topped With Creme Fraiche:



Ingredients:

Strawberry - 1 cups cubed evenly into chunks
Banana - 1 cubed
Mango - 1 cubed
Apricot - 1 cup cubed
Creme Fraiche - 4 tbsp

Preparation:

Add bananas to the bowl first and then add the rest of the fruits. This helps the fruit stay fresh longer. Chill all the fruits in the fridge for 30 minutes, give it a toss and transfer them into individual bowls. Serve with a dollop of creme fresh. Yum-O!

Fruit Salad Topped In Fresh Cream:


Now what would one do if the fruits are not sweet and perfect for our taste. A good way to dress them up and make then enjoyable is drenching the fruits in fresh cream. Apart from the taste, texture and appearance of fruit matters. Most people like the one soaked in fresh cream because it makes the fruit taste sweeter and richer. Either way, I love to make fruit salad and here are two other versions to the already existing Mango fruit salad and spicy fruit salad. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Fruits ( Banana, Mango, Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach, Nectarine, Apricot) - 3 cups
Madarin Oranges - 1 can
Fresh Cream - 1/4 cup
Whole Milk or 2 % Milk - 3/4 cup
Sugar - as per taste


Preparation:

Mix together the fresh cream, milk and sugar. Toss in the fruits and chill it in the fridge. Serve anytime.
