#88 Refreshing Fruit Salad with Ginger dressing

Fruit salads are so versatile that you can cut up any three or more of your favorite fruits and toss in a simple dressing and voila! you have a colorfully healthy salad. If you prefer to make your dressing  from scratch, the flavor is enhanced converting the salad into a dessert!! If you can eat a salad and it tastes like dessert-- who could ask for more? With summer upon us, bringing with it an abundance of fruits I am ready to bring home all the seasonal tropical fruits. Anyway, this is only a gateway to a wonderful world of fruit salads.......

Ingredients:
Pineapple chunks- 1/2 cup
Strawberries cut up in chunks- 1/2 cup
Blueberries- 1/2 cup
Fresh Mint Leaves- 5
Fresh Ginger-1/2 inch piece

Lemon juice- 1/2 lemon

Water- 1/2 cup




This simple salad is being sent to Pia's Innovative Salad Event #2 Fruits at
