Tropical Fruit and Ginger Salad Recipe

Tropical Fruit and Ginger Salad is a perfect side dish for the upcoming warmer summer weather, and goes well with any grilled meat, chicken, or fish. Not only is this salad refreshing and delicious, it is quick and easy, requiring only six ingredients and about 20 minutes hands-on time. To save even more time, you can purchase pineapple and mango that have already been peeled, cored, and chunked in the produce department of most larger grocery stores. If you have two or three kiwifruit on hand, you can also add them to this salad; they add extra flavor and color.

””Choose mangos that give slightly when squeezed; make sure they are not too soft, since mangos become stringy when they are overripe.

Fresh pineapples are readily available; choose heavy fruit with fresh-looking fronds. Make sure there are no soft spots on the outside of the pineapple (evidence of overripe or spoiled fruit), and insure there is no mold on the bottom where the fruit was cut.

When buying fresh ginger, choose plump pieces that are heavy for their size, with no evidence of shriveling; if the ginger is light, it means that it is old and has dried out.

If you need a good salad to take to a barbecue, Tropical Fruit and Ginger Salad is ideal, since it can be made up to 8 hours ahead and left to chill in the refrigerator until serving time, eliminating the need for last-minute prep. As an added bonus, this delicious and beautiful salad has only 81 calories per serving and less than 1 gram of fat; perfect for those who are attempting to get into last year’s swimsuit!
