To start off with my brand new Good Cook fresh fruit bowl, the ProFreshionals Cut Fruit Bowl, I made the kids a summer fruit salad with fresh organic cherries. Actually all the fruit was fresh and organic but the cherries are in season in Washington right now and OH So good. This recipe can be changed according to the fresh fruit you may have on hand or that your family prefers.
My new bowl is so big, I had no idea it would be so big, but it’s amazing because it’s two bowls in one. It is a large bowl and then inside it fits a slightly smaller bowl with a collarnder build into it. This keeps the fruit liquids off the fruit making your salad or other fruit creation last longer. Keep your eye out for the bottom recipes, it’s for adults only!
