Yes, I know … three blog posts in the last three days … I can’t believe it either!
I just have so much kitchen goodness to share with you all … and today’s recipe — my first post for Recipe ReDux — is boozy, fruity goodness to the n’th degree!
Before we get to the booze, let me tell you a bit about Recipe ReDux.
The Recipe ReDux was developed as a fun and social way to provide great tasting, healthful recipes based on whole foods and sound nutrition principals — another mission I can easily get behind!
This month, Recipe ReDux tasked its members with cooking, baking, or just mixing it up in the kitchen with spirits, extracts, or other alcohols. Alcohol and food? Sign me up!
When I started thinking about combining food and alcohol — while keeping it both tasty and healthy — my mind immediately went to fruit and tequila. I enjoy a good fruity margarita from time to time, and I knew that I could somehow translate that to the plate … and that’s just what I did with my easy and delicious margarita fruit salad!
Chock full of fruit, lightly sweetened with agave nectar, and with that distinct margarita taste, my margarita fruit salad is a hands-down winner! This simple, flavorful dish will be making many an appearance over the summer … and I hope you give it a try too.
For this recipe, I used a combination of blueberries, pineapple, strawberries, and kiwi, but any combination of fruit you like would proably work. Oh, I also used The Chef and my’s favorite tequila, Espolon. And whether you go with their tequila blanco (light) or tequila reposado (dark), you won’t go wrong at all!
