Summer fêtes are typically laden with amazing grilled savories and fresh seasonal salads.  The beautiful colors of seasonal fruits, vegetables and flowers usually inspire me to focus less on the tablescape and more on my mise en place.  Okay, if you know my husband is a chef, then you know any time spent in the kitchen requires a bit of luck between the ingredients and tools for me to produce a dish worthy of sharing the same table!

Since the melon and mozzarella salad above might just be a perfect combination of sweet and savory on a hot summer’s day, I went on a quest to find the right tools to help me execute this dish.  Here’s what I found . . .

Between the strawberry huller, the peach pitter and the very cool melon knife, a gorgeous fruit salad should be moments away.  With numerous culinary gadgets available in the marketplace, I found the selection at Willams-Somona to be a useful for this recipe and many more.  Be it a simply prepared dish of perfectly diced fruit to a complicated baked good topped with your favorite fruit, these tools are dreamy.  Here are a couple more of my favorites:

perfectly diced pineapples served in a pineapple . . .

or

cubing an avocado for an California sandwich . . .

or

pitting cherries to make a fresh cherry tart . . .

or

properly diced bananas for yummy pudding . . .

Not sure you’ll need to be a classically trained chef to artistically present your next fruit salad with these tools on hand.  Between the tools and the plethora of recipes at your fingertips – no more cookbook limitations – your next creation will be surely wow your guests.  Enjoy!
