GREEK OLIVE FRUIT SALAD

GREEK OLIVE FRUIT SALAD

The Greeks know more than any other culture the taste of the ‘game’ (the lamb) in the Kalamata olive. Pungent sweet, salty, acrid, fatty, chewy and tender at the same time. It’s all there – in a plant.

Red and green grapes, cantaloupe, apple, pecans enveloped in the perfect sauce that brings the lamb so delicately close to the fruit absent the slaughter, that one must call it divine!

Makes 6 cups
