Florida's response cited a medley of laws governing voting and used language strikingly similar to that of conservative advocacy groups claiming widespread voter fraud threatens the integrity of national elections.


It's a new kind of Selma...VOTER CLEANSING.

Grilled Fruit Salad Sluice
Makes 4 servings

A salad with integrity, composed of perfect ingredients.

2 halved pitted nectarines
2 fresh pineapple slices
6 large strawberries, halved
6 cups mixed salad greens
1 small shallot, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. olive oil
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper

Heat greased grill to medium-high heat.

Grill fruit 8 min. or until lightly browned on both sides, turning after 4 minutes (see tips, below).

Arrange greens on platter.  Top with grilled fruit and shallots.  Whisk together remaining ingredients and drizzle over salad.

Tips:

To prepare pineapple, slice off top and bottom; slice 1" thick and remove rinds.  Cut pineapple from around core after grilling (discard core); this makes it easier to turn with tongs on the grill.  You will have about half of a pineapple remaining to use however you would like.

Slice nectarines vertically after grilling.

To grill strawberries, thread onto skewers.
