More Breakfast? This time fruit!

I am on a breakfast bender I guess.  Well there are probably worse things I could be on a bender for.  The next recipe comes from another one of my new cookbooks, Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite.

I am fairly sure all readers know who Gordon Ramsay is but recently I have started to get into his cooking because he leads a very healthy lifestyle.  This guy does marathons and iron mans and all kinds of crazy stuff like that.  When I purchased this book I had tagged one of the very first recipes, melon and berry salad.

It was pretty easy and I didn’t really take any “in progress” pictures.  I also didn’t write up a fancy recipe page since it was so easy.  To make it I cut a cantaloupe and a honeydew melon into bite size cubes.  I then mixed the melons lightly with 10 oz of mixed berries (I used blackberries and raspberries).  I grated a lime and an orange over the fruit and then squeezed the juice of half the lime and half the orange over the fruit.  I drizzled with honey and then sprinkled with shredded mint.  I then mixed gently and served.

Verdict:  Very easy and fast to make.  And very tasty as well.  I could see this as a good dish to bring to a party so it’s use extends past breakfast.
