"Macerate" may not sound like the most appetizing word, but the process of macerating fruit creates a world of flavor your taste buds can't ignore. Maceration is essentially marinating, except with fruit. It lends itself to almost any combination of herbs and spices, and the result is a juicy bite that's sweet, savory, spicy and tangy all at once.
Pair with non-fat Greek yogurt and some nuts for a perfectly balanced snack!
