Love fresh fruit salad and this was delicious. I tasted the dressing before I put it on the salad and thought the ginger was going to be too strong, however, once it's on the fruit it tastes wonderful.
This was great! Such a beautifully colored dish, it was as much a pleasure to look at as it was to eat it. I enjoyed how the sauce hits your tastebuds in flavor waves; you can actually taste each individual ingredient in the sauce. I used fresh ginger, and freshly ground nutmeg. I did take pictures; will be posting soon. I will change only 1 thing in the future, and that will be to put only 1 Tbs lemon juice instead of 2.
Delicious! I usually prefer plain cut up mixed fruit to fruit salads because so often the dressing hides the fresh flavor; however, this was absolutely wonderful! The dressing is light enough to add just a touch of flavor without being sickly sweet or heavy. I'm sure you could use any fruit you prefer, but the combination listed is just perfect and made for a beautiful summer dish. Someone needs to take a picture, this one is gorgeous! I cut up all fruit except bananas and strawberries, tossing the nectarines with just a tablespoon of dressing so they wouldn't discolor. Added strawberries and bananas with dressing at serving so they wouldn't get mushy. Yum! Thanks for a great recipe!
