Fruit salad with spicy tamarind palm sugar diping sauce and event




Mix fruits salad serve with tamarind palm sugar sauce is one of the menu for bridal shower at Glass house winery last Sunday and I'm glad everyone enjoy it.
I've been experiment how to create this famous Javanese mix fruits salad or Indonesians called rujak in different way and display ( see the pictures bellow )


This fruits salad / rujak can be serve as simple as you want slices fruit and dip directly to the sauce  or drizzle into mix fruits.


But this is one of my favorite,  Diced fruits serve on sweet pepper and drizzle with the sauce on top, It's perfect for a finger foods party.






Or you can serve on the stick and dip into the sauce, You can use any fruits you like I like to use mango and ripe yellow papaya is best for this recipe.





This picture make me happy I'm glad everyone enjoy the foods and I have a great time and Thank you all !

Special Thanks to Mark  for your help and to take these pictures for me :)  I think this menu it's so perfect at this tropical glass house winery.







Use any fruits you like for the recipe can be slices diced or cut in cube, If don't like any spicy at all just omit the Thai chili pepper for the sauce.
