Now and then, I run across something that gets my creative juices going in the kitchen.
A few posts ago, I shared my new love for Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread. Not only do I adore having a honey sweetened spread for the kids, but I also feel inspired by the different flavors.
(In case you missed it Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread comes in four flavors: Blueberry Lemon, Strawberry, Triple Berry and Tropical.)
In addition to eating the spreads on toast and nut butter sandwiches, the kids and I have been having a lot of fun in the kitchen getting creative. So far, we’ve made fruit roll ups out of the Triple Berry and Strawberry and an ice cream topping out of the Blueberry Lemon.
Today I want to share with you what just may be my favorite creation so far: A Grilled Chicken & Mango Salad.
In it I’ve used the Tropical flavor, which lends a slight sweetness to both the marinade and dressing. I love the way it contrasts with the crushed red pepper and chili powder. If you want to heat things up another notch, I think 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in the marinade would be lovely.
