Unlikely Food Combos That Are Actually Delicious
The best foods are often those within our comfort zones, but when you experiment you never know what new favorites you can find! These combinations are great examples of sweet, savory, rich and soft flavors that would never normally go together, but are surprisingly excellent!
Cantaloupe + Prosciutto + Balsamic Drizzle
Pineapple + Jalapeño + Bacon
Jalapeños and bacon are a duo we see fairly often, but introduce some of the tangy sweetness of pineapple and magic is made!
Watermelon + Feta + Blackberry
Not only would this flavor combo be something great to introduce your guests to, but it also works out to be a perfect red, white and “blue” flavor combination that’s visually appealing as well! We would even consider adding a drizzle of balsamic glaze on these, what about you?
Chocolate + Cayenne Pepper
Cacao is incredibly popular in Mexican cuisine, so would you really be surprised that spicy Mexican chocolate fudge exists?
BBQ + Orange + Soy Sauce
Mmmmm… the joys of orange chicken fresh from your favorite Chinese restaurant. Take this sweet, tangy sauce to the next level when you make it yourself and smother it onto some grilled chicken kabobs.
Avocado + Chocolate
Some raw cacao powder, maple syrup and coconut milk combined with ripe avocado makes for a decadent, creamy dessert that’s healthy enough to double as one stellar breakfast.
Strawberry + Basil
Incredibly refreshing! The peppery nature of basil is in fact an ideal complement to the floral and sweet strawberry.
Cereal + Chicken
When you think about it, pretty much any hard-crunchy snack could be turned into an amazing breading!
