Top Review by Sydney Mike

VERY, VERY NICE! I especially liked the combo of strawberries, a nicely ripe & sweet cantaloupe & the pistachios! AND, of course, the chocolate! A GREAT FRUIT DISH, & a keeper, too! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]

  3. Add chocolate, sugar and tahini to hot cream and stir until smooth, set aside.
  4. Scrape seeds from both halves of the vanilla bean, stir the seeds into the chocolate mixture.

  6. Combine fruits and place in 6 serving dishes. Drizzle warm ganache over fruit. Sprinkle with a generous portion of chopped pistachios. Garnish with a sprig of mint, if desired.
