Saturday Night Menu

For supper tonight---
Shrimp Scampi with bow tie pasta, garlic bread, romaine salad with carrots and cherry tomatoes and a lemon/olive oil dressing.
Fruit salad with honey/lime dressing for dessert.
The fruit salad is something I like to have a lot in the summer when fresh fruit is readily available. It is another recipe that can be altered a lot of ways to suit individual tastes.
Fresh Fruit Salad with honey/lime dressing. Serves 4
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped into bite-sized pieces. (Pear or any other firm fruit can be substituted or added.
2 kiwi fruit, peeled and cut into chunks. (Again, other tropical fruits can be substituted or added.
4 peaches, nectarines or plums in any combination you like, chopped. I used 2 peaches and 2 black plums tonight. Any soft fruit will do.
1 cup of summer berries. I used blueberries and chopped strawberries tonight. Raspberries, blackberries, cherries will do fine.
To make the dressing you need 1/4 cup of lime juice, 2 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of water. Add all of these to a small saucepan, bring to a boil, watching carefully. After about a minute, cool a spoonful and try it. It should taste tangy, but a little sweet. If the fruit is a little tart or if you prefer a sweeter taste over the tang of the lime, add more honey or even some brown sugar when you are cooking the dressing. Pour over the fruit and mix. Best to let it sit for at least 30 minutes to let the fruit and dressing blend.
It is possible to prepare this the night before, just don't add the berries until you are ready to serve the salad. They'll turn to mush overnight.
