Simple and Delicious Fruit Salad

   Devo Olive Oil company is again sponsoring our A Book and A Bite Facebook Party, so I'm sharing my second creation with their yummy Peach Balsamic Vinegar.

     I poured about 1/8 cup of the peach over 1/4 cup of sugar, stirred it, then let it sit to dissolve a bit more. What surprised me was how good just the combination of those two ingredients tasted when I sampled it. The sugar cancels out some of the sharp vinegar taste, and the peach scent was evident in this.

     We still have apples and I found grapes for .99 cents a pound this week so I created a delicious fruit salad. Exact amounts aren't necessary for this, just use what you have. I combined about 3 cups of grapes, sliced in half lengthwise, 4 apples cut into small pieces, and 1 cup pecans, broken into small pieces. Add 3/4 cup sour cream to the sugar vinegar mixture, then stir in fruit and nuts to coat. When the girls and I tasted this we decided it was just a bit too tart, so we added another 1/2 cup Equal Sucralose and stirred again. Perfect! My parents shared dinner with us and everyone enjoyed this salad.

     Don't forget to join me and the other Moms of Masterbooks for the Facebook Book and A Bite party this Thursday night at 8pm Central.

     Devo Oil Company provided me the sample used in this recipe for the first post in which I shared about their product.
