The savory treatment of sweet fruits is popular in high-end restaurants—the addition of salt, spice and acid draws wide flavor profiles from wan, sugary fruit (think aged balsamic vinegar on fresh strawberries). Paleteria Fernandez, Westchester’s snazziest ice pop shop, is not lagging behind the times. They take sweet fruits like mango, and shower the slices with salt, chili powder and freshly squeezed lime. Packed in a single serve baggie, and perfect for on the go munching, these light, sweet and salty slices are like the most sophisticated potato chips on earth.
