Hi! Welcome to another day in UIK. If you are a regular reader, then good to see you here again, I missed you.
And if it's your first or second time here, then welcome! Here in UIK you will find recipes that are simple to make and awesome to eat. You will find savory recipes and also sweet ones. But one thing I can guarantee that you can find here and nowhere else, are the flavor and recipe combos of east and west. Like my favorite rose water cardamom pancakes or my all time favorite Aromatic Persian Spiced Turkey.
And for today, I have this honey rose water fruit salad for you. Naturally sweetened - I mean, honey is the best sweetener ever right? And of course, naturally dairy and gluten free because I just couldn't put myself together to add cheese to this fruit salad and serve it on bread. So, there you go. Healthy and fabulous!
Just look at these gorgeous colors. Don't you want to have it all?
Like all the other fruit salads out there, this honey rose water fruit salad is so simple to make. What makes this fruit salad special is the sauce. Honey rose water sauce is originated by spring Persian flavors and aromas such as orange blossom water and rose water. Of course cardamom is a key ingredient in this sauce as it compliments other ingredients very well. It's like adding a new layer of flavor to this fruit salad.
That's why I say this honey rose water fruit salad is like having an Iranian summer in a bowl!
Even though I'm usually not picky about the ingredients and have told you many times to go with whatever you have, for this honey rose water fruit salad I suggest that you use the fruit I have mentioned in the recipe as their flavors combine very well with the sauce. Tangy kiwi with sweet pineapple and then juicy oranges that compliments the aroma of orange blossom water. I think we all know this is going to be a heavenly fruit salad.
