Simple Fruit Salad with Lime & Ginger



For me, the best ending to a big meal is something light and sweet. I adore fruit-based desserts and this simple fruit salad is great on its own or over angel food or pound cake.

Simple Fruit Salad with Lime & Ginger
adapted from Gourmet, serves 6

juice and zest of 2 limes
1/8 c finely grated fresh ginger
4 T agave nectar
1 mango, peeled and cut into 1/2” cubes
1/2 pineapple (2 c), peeled, cored and cut into 1/2” cubes
1 c blueberries (or blackberries)

Combine lime zest, juice, ginger and agave nectar in a small bowl. Stir well. In a large serving bowl, combine mango, pineapple and blueberries. Add syrup and toss. Let sit 20 minutes for juices to combine.

simple but sounds like it would add a wonderful kick with the ginger!
