In fact, we recently went to a Memorial Day get-together where I made a huge (and beautiful if I say so myself) green salad, complete with red/yellow pepper slices, halved cherry tomatoes and a few fresh purple chive blossoms in the middle garnished with a few spearmint leaves, all fresh from the herb garden. Well, we're sitting there eating our meal and the woman across from me picks the chive up from the plate (she didn't know I'd made the salad) and asks with a bewildered look on her face, "What is THIS? Did someone put a flower in my salad?" My man nearly fell off his chair laughing, and I have to admit I was right there joining him in the humor of it all! Ah well, I have fun!!!!
When I came across this great little tid-bit from www.wikihow.com, I knew I'd have to make it and share it here. Talk about a unique way in which to serve the endless fruit salads that are sure to come out at every picnic this summer! It's so simply and quick, but what a presentation that is certain to WOW!!! I can't wait to make it. Here's the link:
So... exercise your "cube that fruit" muscle (and of course be careful when you're wielding that cutting knife), and make a deelish, low-cal, FABulously presented fruit salad - maybe even for your upcoming Father's Day feast!
P.S. And don't forget to toss some spearmint leaves, berries, lemon/lime/orange peels or edible flowers into ice cube holders to make absolutely bee-oooo-ti-ful ice cubes for your drinks! Simple little things that make such a difference!
