Breathe some new life into an old standby


What is inexpensive, easy to prepare and even the pickiest of eaters enjoy?

The answer is fruit.

I hear a lot of comments about how fruit is unimaginative and boring. So let’s spice it up with a Chili-Salt rub! Three simple ingredients do amazing things to fruit: Fresh chilies, salt and sugar. The rub is best on fruits that are slightly acidic, the salt and sugar combo take on the acidity while the chili gives it a nice kick. My favorites are mango and pineapple.

This can be served a couple of different ways. Sprinkle the trilogy onto the cut up pieces of fruit or prepare cute individual bags that guests use to dip the fruit into. The latter practice is used quite often in Asian countries as the fruit is sold at roadside stands with paper packets.

Either way this fruit will not be boring….
