There’s an overabundance of fruit in my kitchen right now.
I’m obsessed with eating fresh fruit in the summer. There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than biting into a juicy slice of watermelon or grabbing a handful of fresh strawberries.
I’m particularly fond of fresh mango and peaches. Unfortunately, peaches come at the end of the summer season, so there’s only a small timeframe open to get your hands on a plump, juicy peach.
Peaches are an amazing fruit to use in a salad. If they’re underripe, you can grill them and add them to salads with chicken or pork. If they’re overripe, you can mix them in with other fruit for a fruit salad.
Since there are no fresh peaches for sale within a 100-mile radius from me right now, I decided to use the next best thing for a fruit salad: canned peach pie filling.
“Why didn’t you just use canned peaches?” you might be asking. Well, I wanted to use the syrup the pie filling contained as a binder for the other fruit in my salad. Usually, when I make a fruit salad, I make a simple syrup with something like honey or lime juice. Pie filling syrup is thick, sweet and the perfect complement to fruit.
It’s a secret ingredient that people will love. I’m thinking about using pie filling for other fruit salads from now on, too.
