Fruit + ________?


If you're a fruit lover, I hope you can help me with more ways to experiment with fruit. I just tried strawberries + balsamic vinegar... and watermelon + basil...

What other combinations of fruit + one ingredient do you enjoy?

  1. Icy cold cantaloupe and a bit of freshly ground black pepper. Not too much. Great on a hot day.

    1. Almost any cured pork product, bacon, pancetta, prosciutto, guanciale, country ham with peaches, nectarines, melons, apple and the list goes on.

      1. I love balsamic with plums or cherries, prosciutto with figs, pears, apples or melon, blue cheese with figs, apples, pears or dates, any melon or citrus with mint, any melon with ginger, any melon with salt, pineapple or mango with chili powder and/or salt - plus too many more to count!

        1. watermelon with tomatoes and feta.

          1. It's fruit +2, but strawberries dipped in sour cream and then dark brown sugar. Delicious.
