How to Make FARMERS MARKET FRUIT SALAD (SALLYE)
- MAKING THE DRESSING:
Whip the cream until stiff peaks stand up when tested, set aside
In medium sized mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks until frothy, set aside
In heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the flour to make a roux. Stir constantly to keep from scorching.
Add the pineapple juice and slowly bring to a boil, again stirring constantly
Once it starts to boil, remove from heat
Slowly add the sugar to egg yolks, whisking until creamy
Graually stir the hot juice into egg mixture, set aside and allow to cool
While syrup is cooling you can cut up your fruit

Remove stems from strawberries and cut in half.
Peel peaches and cut into bite sized chunks
Cut grapes in half if desired or leave whole
Peel and core pineapple, cut into bite sized chunks
