Far East Fruit Salad


For your next summer party, forget about the usual burgers and hot dogs. Instead, serve your guests a delicate dish cooked with Pernod liqueur. A successor of absinthe called pastis, Pernod’s flavor is derived from star anise, a star-shaped spice with a licorice flavor, and is combined with other aromatic plants, including mint, fennel and coriander.

Pernod enhances the flavor of vegetables and is commonly used in seafood dishes. Try it in this colorful fruit salad for a healthy snack, or as a dessert with other summer Pernod recipes, such as Mediterranean Sea Bass With Fennel And Pernod, Sea Scallops Brochette With Pernod Sauce or Steamed Mussels In Pernod Broth.
