Fruit salads are extremely popular during the summer months at barbeques and parties. Fruit salad is great during the summer because there is a wide variety of seasonal and cheap fruit to include. Things change a little in the winter when the seasonal fruit selection decreases. During winter months the price of your favorite fruit salad ingredients are likely more expensive and of lower quality. This recipe uses apples and oranges which are cheap and readily available this time of year. The fruit is paired with goat cheese and our Pastamore Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil for an excellent savory and sweet winter flavor. Consider adding dried, sweetened cranberries if you want the salad to be a little sweeter.
2 - medium Fuji apples
1 - large navel orange
1 Tbsp - Pastamore Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil
2 oz - crumbled goat cheese
1/8 tsp - ground nutmeg (cinnamon is an acceptable substitute)
To taste - salt and black pepper
1. Wash apples and cut in quarters. Remove the core from the apple and dice into 1/2" x 1/2" pieces. Place into a mixing bowl.
2. Cut the orange into supremes, and then cut in half from side to side. Check out this video if you have not cut supremes before. Add to the mixing bowl.
3. Add the Pastamore Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil, goat cheese, and nutmeg. Fold lightly using a spatula until all ingredients are evenly mixed. Season as needed with salt and black pepper.
