Fruit Arrangements

Before I could realise it, the last ten days of Ramadan are already here. Even though the entire Ramadan is a blessed month for muslims, the last ten days have a special significance since it was during this period that the first verses of the Holy Quran were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Muslims all over the world spend their nights in special supplications to seek and observe Laylatul Qadr ( Night of Power/Destiny).
I haven’t had much time to do any serious cooking/baking during the past few days but I wanted to share these fruit arrangement that I made for iftar (breaking of the fast). No iftar table is complete without some fruits. Fruits provide a refreshing burst of energy and a variety of important vitamins and minerals. However, the same bowl of fruit salad everyday can become boring after a while.These fun and easy fruit arrangements are also great for kids’ parties and picnics.

My four year old daughter Sofia made these fruit kebobs by piercing chunks of melon, pineapple,strawberries and grapes on bamboo skewers……I just did the chopping part. We arranged all these skewers on a halved and inverted melon.

For this melon basket I carved out a basket by removing the sides of the melon and scooping out the insides using a melon baller. I filled it with a medley of pineapple chunks, melon chunks, sliced strawberries and blackberries. For the dressing I used a dash of honey,orange juice,salt and pepper.
