Watermelon, Cantaloupe and Berry Fruit Salad

Tools make cooking fun! Everyone has certain tools in the kitchen they cannot live without in the kitchen. My list of ‘cannot live without’ kitchen tools is long. Here are a few of my favorite things:
1) Pressure Cooker – it makes cooking beans, lentils, meat stews a breeze. During the solid food stage with both my kids, I was able to whip up fresh homemade puree in less than 5 minutes using a pressure cooker.

2) My Braun hand blender – perfect for quick jobs in the kitchen – smoothies, chutneys etc.

3) My Cuisinart 16 cup food processor – when I go elaborate, this baby comes out. It does everything in the kitchen. Makes dough, slices the peperoni, makes salsa, etc. I love my 16-cup Cuisinart, but it is heavy and I don’t like the clean up so I don’t use is daily.

4) Microplane – I love the Microplane for zesting and grating. Zesting makes for yummy salads, muffins, pancakes etc. Grating makes for nice garnishes – I can grate chocolate, cheese, and nuts etc.

5) Melon Baller – my favorite addition in my repertoire. I like how I can make small fruit balls using it and make a very beautiful fruit salad. Kids love the fruit balls as they can pick them up. Another bonus – the juices from the fruit seep and blend and the fruit salad tastes yummy as is. No need for other juices or sugar in this salad.

    I love to eat Salads, salads are quite tasty and also they are considered to be health foods. Salads are also great when you are on a diet. ‘:'”,
