Tropical Fruit Salad with Thai Ginger Dressing

 Our weather is unbelievably hot at the moment, and being in the kitchen is not ideal.  So my favourite tropical fruit salad seemed the perfect thing to make for this weather.  There’s nothing quite like fruit in the hot summer months, not to mention that it is packed with vitamins and minerals.  Tropical fruit is no longer reserved for those lucky enough to live in the Tropics, as supermarkets are making them more readily available to us all.

I personally like papaya, pineapple, mango and kiwifruit in this salad, but the possibilities are endless, and when you add the ginger syrup, it all comes together in a delicious explosion of flavours in your mouth.
Have fun in the sun my friends, and for those of you experiencing the cold,  remember
“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.”
― Henry David Thoreau
