#331: Strawberries and Kiwi with Cardamom Cream


On summer weekends a fruit salad can be the perfect snack or end to a meal.  This variation takes up the dessert-feeling of a simple fruit salad with the inclusion of a sweet whipped cream.  I love the taste of cardamom (it's the Indian in me!) and adding just a bit to the cream gives the dish another level of flavor.  Trust me, after you have the cardomom cream you'll be adding a dollop to pound cake, shortbread and any other treat you can think of.  




Strawberries & Kiwi with Cardamom Cream 

Ingredients
Strawberries
Kiwis 
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
3/4 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp sugar

Directions
  1. In a bowl or standing mixer, combine the cream, sugar and cardamom.  Whip until stiff peaks form.  
  2. Cut as many strawberries and kiwis as you would like (this isn't super technical).  I'd say half a kiwi and four strawberries per bowl would be perfect.  
  3. Layer the strawberries, then a spoonful of the cream, followed by a layer of kiwis and a dollop of the cardamom cream on top.

  3. I love the spice cardamom but have never thought about adding it to whipped cream. Brilliant idea and I will definitely try it! I bet it would be great with all the holiday desserts too, like pumpkin pie and apple pie. Yummy!!
