Enjoying the fruits of summer
- Fruit, fruit, fruit. Jazz up some simple sliced strawberries with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. The vinegar's tartness heightens the sweetness of the strawberries. Or slice up a dish of peaches and sprinkle with slivered almonds.
Watermelon is also a great choice - and it's fun to eat.
- If you have more time, skewer up some strawberries, peaches, pineapples, plums and papaya. Mix together cup of balsamic vinegar with 2 teaspoons of sugar. Grill the fruit until it is slightly browned, turning and brushing frequently with the sugar mixture.
- If smoothies are more your style, blend together a 10-ounce bag of frozen strawberries (no sugar added), 2 fresh (peeled) kiwi, 8 ounces of non-fat strawberry yogurt and 1 teaspoon almond extract.
