5 Amazing Recipes for Fresh Apricots from Rodale.com

I don’t know about you, but I loooove apricots in any form…dried (sulfite-free, of course!); fresh in their small, velvety skin self; pureed; juice-style; in a smoothie addition; whatever. There’s just something about those beautifully orange colored fruity-jems that make me smile. Perhaps it’s because they are chock full of  beta-carotene and fiber? Seriously though, they are little gems in fruit form.

Tart in flavor, but smooth and sweet. Best described as a cross between a peach and a plum.

Anyway, below are two delicious recipes I am going to try ASAP, kudos to Rodale –

1) “Mango-Apricot Smoothie Add a little sunshine to your morning with this smoothie, or simply pair apricots with Greek yogurt and honey for an even quicker wake-me-up treat that can serve double-duty as a simply elegant dessert.”

2) “Curried Lentil and Apricot Salad with Arugula Top an apricot-adorned main-dish salad with your choice of vegetarian-friendly lentils or succulent slices of filet mignon.”

Are you loving apricots as much as me these days?  Any recipes?

P & L,

Mem
