Hankering for the onset of spring, I made this fruit salad with a cold in my head and warmer weather on my mind. Plus I have this Cuisinart mini-food-processor that I wanted to test out. You could probably use any fresh fruits you like, but this is what I used. The watermelon was on special at my favorite supermarket and it makes me think of summer! If you don't have cinnamon sticks or a food processor, you can use already-ground cinnamon. This recipe serves 2, so expand if you need to!

Directions

  1. Chop fresh fruit into small pieces. In a mixing bowl, stir fruit evenly.
  2. Break cinnamon sticks in half, insert into food processor bowl. Grind for 2-2 1/2 minutes to get a powdery consistency. Strain cinnamon powder from processor bowl and sprinkle on fruit.
  3. Drizzle honey onto fruit and mix.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or so, to let the flavors blend. Or, you can eat it fresh-made.

This was so good. I used 2 cinnamon sticks and 3 tablespoons of honey, and I'm pretty sure that was enough. It was a nice balance of fruit and spices, and the pears somehow stayed fresh under the honey. One thing for sure, though, it tastes better when it's fresh.
