Fruit Salad With Orange Poppy Seed Dressing

Back on Sunday, there was a TweetChat that officially opened Brunch Week.  One of the questions during the chat was, “What is the one brunch item you can’t live without?” For me, it’s not coffee. It’s not a fruity alcoholic beverage.  It’s not bacon (although bacon is a close second.)

My one can’t-do-without breakfast/brunch item is fruit.  I have to have some kind of fruit with a big, heavy meal (as brunch usually is.)  A slice of pineapple, a wedge of orange – stuff that’s usually meant as a garnish – I always eat it.  It helps cut through the richness of the other food, and is a perfect finishing bite.  This dish elevates the garnish to a full fledged side dish.

Our Brunch Week giveaway is almost over.  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for all the prizes from our generous sponsors.

Here are today’s participating bloggers.
