If you’re having company and you don’t have time to chop, many supermarkets have beautifully cut-up fruits already done! Just add in flavoring, and you have a unique dessert. If you don’t want to be busy checking fresh herbs (although I highly recommend using fresh! A little bit goes very far!), I found that Prima dried mint has a fresh flavor. —Personal Chef Ruth Bendkowski
