Sour, Spiced & Salted Summer Fruit Salad

Up your summer fruit salad with a magical sprinkle of a simple seasoning blend from http://meatified.com that brings the best out of your favorite seasonal fruits.

“I don’t even like fruit!” is something that gets said pretty often at home, usually as a grumpy retort to my husband whenever I say I’m hungry and he tells me that there’s plenty of fruit in the kitchen.

Your new favorite condiment, these simple Lime Pickled Red Onions from http://meatified.com add pizazz to tacos, salads, grilled meats and more with their vibrant hue & fresh flavor.

Since before I could cook a damn thing, I was passionately phobic of vinegar.
