Tropical Fruit Salad with a Lime Ginger Dressing

Tropical Fruit Salad with a Ginger Lime Dressing

So tell me, does this look good, or what?  It is!!!  This is a fabulous salad for a large group or you can make it for your family.  The recipe is very easy.  The dressing can be brought together in minutes made the day before.  And, with the exception of the kiwi, the fruit can also be prepped the day before.   An hour prior to serving simply peel and slice the kiwi and add it to the rest of the fruit.  Drizzle the dressing over, gently toss to coat and serve.

And the taste?  Really, really good.  The zesty lime and ginger go great with the tropical fruit.  It’s not too heavy, and it provides a wonder sweet glistening drizzle.   If you can find star fruit, it would be fun to add one of those, sliced, to garnish the bowl.  This is a great dish to accompany the breakfast tacos.
