Red Fruit Salad with Honeyed Yogurt


Posted by on September 10, 2015 / 2 Comments

Strawberries, watermelon, raspberries and pomegranate seeds make for a juicy, sweet and delicious red fruit salad. A dollop of yogurt and drizzle of honey finishes it off.

I love how travel inspires so many of my recipes. But what I love even more is having an unexpectedly delicious meal when I’m traipsing around Bali in my flip flops and beachy-attire on my motorbike and thinking, “eh, I’m just gonna go grab a quick breakfast.” And then I get this!

Such is life when you live in Bali for two months. You’re no longer a tourist…you’re most definitely a local. I had an apartment when I lived in Ubud for a month and would scour farmer’s markets in the morning for fresh, local produce to whip up in my kitchen. It was the best! Although, truth be told, I also had the pleasure of enjoying some pretty fine dining in Ubud.

When I moved south to Canggu, Bali I had this gorgeous little villa close to the beach – and swapped the benefits of a kitchen for proximity to some absolutely divine cafes, restaurants and a burgeoning social scene.

One thing I’m a big proponent of is getting out and exploring when traveling. Even if you do have a place with a kitchen, don’t become reliant upon it. Because yes, it is possible to travel the world with food restrictions, eat out in a healthy manner and have a blast while doing it! (and PS – I’m writing an ebook on it!).

So one morning in Canggu, I decided to hit up the restaurant Sea Circus for a little brekkie. I had previewed the menu online (as I frequently do) and there were a few options that sounded amazing. But when I got there, I saw this bright red bowl of goodness on someone else’s table and new right away that’s what I’d be ordering. A red fruit salad? Oh yes.

It’s so simple it’s a little silly…but so flavorful at the same time. My version is a combo of watermelon, strawberries and raspberries…which are then covered in coconut yogurt, drizzled with honey and topped with pomegranate seeds. I used store bought coconut yogurt from the local health shop, but you can use dairy yogurt or coconut whipped cream as well.

This breakfast is sweet, juicy and vibrant…and a perfect way to start your day in Bali, California or wherever you are!

Enjoy!
