And even more fruit salad!

Just got done making this week's batch, and today I added a new ingredient -- "Cara Cara" oranges. I saw them at Whole Foods yesterday, and they looked intriguing... even more so when sliced into wedges. What a great color!

(And they taste as good as they look!)

I tried to take some photos of the finished fruit salad so that I could use PanoramaMaker to put together a nice closeup panorama (is that an oxymoron?), but for some reason, it didn't work. I kept getting really weird distorted and mangled images. Finally I gave up and threw one together in Photoshop -- it's far from perfect, but it does give you an idea of what the finished product looks like. -- PL

That does look delicious, I may have to swing by Whole Foods later. Thanks for the tip!

I've had those oranges before! They're delicious. And the color is definitely striking.

Oh my, that looks so fresh and tasty. I had some fresh pineapple with breakfast. It was so good. Nothing beats fresh fruit. It is natures candy.

You've really come into your own in cooking since your semi-retirement. I can say I'm interested in trying a Laird dish. haha.

Mr Laird, I have a little tip for quickly peeling kiwis you might want to try-

Cut off the ends, then take a spoon- a larger tablespoon works best- and slide it under the skin on one end. Then just twist the fruit, scraping the spoon against the inside of the skin. The peel slides right off.

The fruit salad does look delicious. :)

Rejoicing in the day,
