Ingredients for 4 servings

For dressing:

1-inch knob ginger root, peeled

1 jalapeño, minced, divided

zest and juice of half a lime

1/4 cup honey

For fruit salad:

4 cups of your favorite tropical fruit, cut into bite sized pieces - such as:

oranges

clementines

kiwi

strawberries

carambola (starfruit)

grapefruit

pineapple

other fresh berries

bananas

Preparation

1.

For dressing: Use a microplane or fine grater to grate ginger onto a cutting board or into a bowl. Set a fine mesh strainer over a small microwaveable bowl. Transfer ginger pulp and any juices to the strainer. Press down on the pulp with the back of a spoon to capture the ginger's juices in the bowl. Discard solids. Add half the minced jalapeño, lime, zest and honey to the ginger juice. Microwave for 20 seconds on high. Stir. Microwave another 20 seconds or until mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool while you prep the fruit. Cut fruit into bite sized pieces and place in a medium bowl. Add the remaining minced jalapeño. If using citrus fruit like oranges or grapefruit, cut it into supremes. (If you're unsure about this method, I've found a You Tube link-- embedded above that explains the technique. Toss the salad with dressing just before serving.

2.

Ideal for breakfast with yogurt, granola and the dressing drizzled over the top. Yummy for dessert with some tea cookies or ice cream!
