A Pad Thai Recipe That's Better Than Takeout

Easy, Fruity, Delicious Dessert

A
Kir Royale

is one of my favorite champagne cocktails, so when I came across this recipe for a healthier, lower-fat dessert full of the same flavors, I was definitely excited. This berrylicious creation is a cooling mix of fresh red berries and bubbly sparkling wine, laced with zesty lemon and fragrant mint. If that doesn't scream summer, I don't know what does! After a rich meal of grilled meats and cheesey salads, serve a refreshing dessert and your guests will go home happy. For a look at the recipe,


Black and Red Kir Royale Fruit Salad
From The Hearty Boys

1 cup seedless watermelon, diced
2 red plums, pitted and sliced
1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 pint blueberries
1 pint blackberries
1 bunch red seedless grapes
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 cup sparkling wine, chilled
1/4 cup Creme de Cassis
1 lemon, peel cut into strips, for garnish
1 bunch fresh mint, for garnish

  1. Toss all the fruit together in a decorative bowl along with the lemon zest and refrigerate.
  2. Immediately before serving, mix the sparkling wine and Cassis together and pour over the fruit.
  3. Gently toss, garnish with the lemon peel and mint, and serve.

Serves 6 to 8.

LaLaLaurie06, what if you substituted a sparkling fruit juice? Maybe a berry flavored one would be delish!

Kirsch, sugar, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries is also very delicious. They sell it at Mocca on Maiden Lane in Union Square. Best deli in town!
