#34: Fruit In Unlikely Places

Chocolate-covered strawberries are a sexy treat, but sometimes we forget that fresh fruit has more than one use! Especially in an unusual recipe, a meal with fresh fruit is a great way to cool down. Try it for unexpected flavors in a sandwich or a salad: No. 7 Sub's Fried Clam Sandwich with Pickled Strawberries in Brooklyn, New York; Crostini Toscani (chicken liver, apricot, pistachio) at Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, Colorado; Watermelon and French Feta Salad at 3030 Ocean in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Why not substitute fruit for an old favorite in a Bacon, Lettuce, and Cantaloupe Sandwich?
