I love summer fruit and have been busy making cobblers with peaches and nectarines these past few weeks. I steer away from pies this time of year, since they require too much pressing and pinching. I like making desserts that at least seem and sound easy. I had never made clafoutis.
This beautiful salad of oranges, grapefruits and pomegranates is the perfect antidote to all the overindulgence of the holidays -- and it's so much more enticing than the typical store-bought fruit salad.
I make my fruit salad for dessert at all kinds of dinner parties year-round: more apples in the winter, more melon in early fall, etc. But this is my favorite season for fruit salad, right now, as the berries of spring are bursting out everywhere.
