We were at friends for dinner last night and we had blackberries. Part of dessert though, not in a salad.

Tom 11/4/24 14:33's a fabulous salad!

Muy buenas las frutas en la ensalada, yo las pongo mucho también porque el punto dulzón y un poco ácido que imprimen a la ensalada es una exquisitez.

This salad looks delicious, especially with the berries! Take care, have a great day!

ANgie, around here we call the kumquat quinoto. I prepare them to keep in syrup. Its skin is sweet and its interior is very acidic. I can't imagine the taste of the quinotos next to the Parmesan cheese. We'll have to try.

While I am not a huge fan of fruit in salad, this looks spectacular. I especially like using kumquats, as I fine them so underutilized in so many cuisines.

The salad looks appetizing, particularly with the addition of berries! 😋 Wishing you well and hoping you have a wonderful day, Angie.

Hi Angie, My wife would love this salad. The only way I could eat it would be if I left the greens out... It is attractive though. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Hi Angie. I had my first kumquat in Greece. This salad looks fantastic. If I had some kumquats at home I could make one of these for lunch-but sadly, no kumquats for me. :)
