Honey Roasted Tamarillos with Coconut Yogurt

I just discovered tamarillos this summer and they’re a pretty interesting fruit — almost like a cross between passion fruit and tomatoes.  They’re delicious raw, if you remove the skins (they can be bitter) but even better when roasted or gently sauteed.  Add them to your morning yogurt, granola or toast!

Honeydew Salad with market Fresh Arugula and Citrus-Avocado Dressing

Raw Carrot and Cantaloupe Salad with Arugula and Blood Orange Vinaigrette

This round was carrots and cantaloupe, but stay tuned for a few more recipe variations that will likely pop up over the summer… Raw Carrot and […]
