As part of the GoodCook Blogger Outreach Program, I was afforded the opportunity to work with the ProFreshionals Cut Fruit Bowl. When the box arrived on my doorstep, I was pleasantly surprised by the size of this bowl. It's huge! I could use this bowl to make enough fruit salad to feed a small army.
What makes this bowl so special? As you know, when fruit is cut and refrigerated, it gives off a lot of juice that can make for a soggy fruit salad. The ProFreshionals Cut Fruit Bowl takes care of that situation. How does it do that?
The bowl has three parts: a lid, an inner bowl that acts as a colander, and an outer bowl with a spout that catches excess juices and allows you to easily discard the juice or save it in another container.
In addition to being a functional bowl, it's also cheerful looking. With the green outer bowl and the bright pink inner bowl with seed-shaped openings, the bowl reminds me of a watermelon. It just makes me happy to look at it. I think it's pretty enough to use as a serving bowl. With the upcoming 4th of July weekend, I was inspired to create this Red, White, and Blue Fruit Salad.
Red, White & Blue Fruit Salad
Strawberries, hulled and quartered
Red Delicious apples, unpeeled and diced
Seedless watermelon, cubed into bite-size pieces
2 tbsp. sugar, optional if berries aren't sweet
Combine equal amounts of the above fruits in a large bowl. Gently stir with a serving spoon. Refrigerate overnight to bring out natural sweetness of berries.
This bowl will not only work well with fresh fruit, but will also be great for canned fruit. I've read many recipes that call for draining canned fruit but reserving the liquid for later use in the recipe. The ProFreshionals Cut Fruit Bowl is perfect for those instances. This bowl is the perfect addition to any kitchen. The ProFreshionals Cut Fruit Bowl is sold exclusively at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
