Fruit Salad Fantasia

For all of us who live in the desert, a place that already now in April is showing hints of summer, the refreshing summer salad is a mainstay. My favorite combination for the simple and quick meal during these times is to buy a fresh and ripe variety of fruit, pair it with a rich cheese and a nut, and drizzle honey over the entire thing. At the moment, pears are perfectly tender and sweet and there's nothing better with pear than a little blue cheese and walnuts.

The possibilities are endless though--here are some ideas to get the creative juices flowing:
Cheddar, apple, peanut and honey
Brie, dried cranberries and pecans
Gorgonzola, strawberries and pine nuts
Peaches, pepperjack and pignolas

You get the drift!

Don't forget to drizzle honey over everything!
