FRUIT SALAD WITH CHILI PEPPER AND LIME HONEY
I know, I said that my pasta salad the other day was my last entry for the HotM but here I go again. But the abundance of sweet and tasty fruit has seduced me totally and then I have a craving to eat fresh peperoncino or chilli pepper so I decided to combine the two. I’m sure that I would find the reason to why people eat hotter food in hotter climates if I searched a little on the web, I’m just too lazy right now because it’s so hot. I am happy to eat my hot fruit salad without really knowing why. I can take that, sometimes I have to know the answer to the questions that pop up in my mind but right now I feel that I am happy in my blissful ignorance, besides I count on having a reader here who knows the answer and generously shares it with us.
Now I will take it easy, I really appreciate this aspect of hot weather, you hear it all over: “Take It Easy” and I am an ardent follower of the TIE movement right now, slow and easy – that’s how life is going to be this weekend! But before I leave you, I just have to remind you that next weekend is Paper Chef weekend so please pop over to the Paper Chef blog and add an ingredient to the list!
