The Fruit Salad that Kept on Giving
On Memorial Day, I made a quick fruit salad for dessert. Of course, the fruit was to be served with crisp, freezing Vanilla Ice Cream! TeeHee, I love ice cream…
So I made a huge vat of fruit salad – tossed some chopped pink lady apples, cut up red grapes and strawberries and topped it off with blueberries. Mixed together some fresh squeezed lemon and sugar and tossed it all together.
And finally, Friday morning I hosted a Fresh Wave House Party at my place (free stuff, good friends!), and I took my starting-to-not-look-so-great fruit salad and tossed a bunch of plain yogurt in with a wee bit more sugar. The juice from the fruit mixed in nicely and we had another fruit salad for another day.
Unfortunately, I took not one single picture of that salad before it finally bid us farewell. But talk about getting mileage out of the humble side dish! But I do have a question for you fine readers.
I’m not big on food substitutes. Personally, I feel that the substitutes we concoct in the laboratory are worse than the item we’re trying to replace. That being said…
What’s your preferred sugar substitute? AND WHY?
Have you read the labels, do you believe it’s better than regular table sugar (otherwise known as White Death?) 🙂
