Celebrate the Summer season with this Grilled Fruit Salad & Smoked Ancho Chile Honey drizzle!
Grilling fresh ripe summery fruits, like pineapple, peaches, strawberries & melon draws our their natural sweetness for an intensified fruity essence. We like to add in some diced fresh fruit to mix in some bright fruit flavors as well!
A squeeze of fresh lemon & drizzle of local Smoked Ancho Chile Honey from Taste Artisanal Market accentuates all the fruity flavors while also providing a warm-cool sensation to the palate. This honey has just the right amount of kick and is fantastic in this dish. Also try it drizzled over cheeses, roasted veggies, fried chicken or whisk it into a dressing or marinade! Check out the Local Goods section in our Shop for other small business goodies.
Pair with our aromatic & refreshing Viognier Reserve '18! This wine has a succulent nose bursting with grapefruit & peach blossoms with a tropical fruit-forward palate & refreshing acidity that complements every aspect of this dish. Our Traminette '19 or Moscato '19 would make excellent pairings as well with their respect honey-lemon-lycee notes and peachy-tropical tones. You can also customize this recipe by adding in your summer fruit favorites- try adding watermelon, nectarine, blueberries or papaya! This easy grilled fruit dish is not only eye-catching, but healthy, delicious & perfect for summer!
