Tropical Fruit Salad with a Lime Ginger Dressing
So tell me, does this look good, or what? It is!!! This is a fabulous salad for a large group or you can make it for your family. The recipe is very easy. The dressing can be brought together in minutes made the day before. And, with the exception of the kiwi, the fruit can also be prepped the day before. An hour prior to serving simply peel and slice the kiwi and add it to the rest of the fruit. Drizzle the dressing over, gently toss to coat and serve.
And the taste? Really, really good. The zesty lime and ginger go great with the tropical fruit. It’s not too heavy, and it provides a wonder sweet glistening drizzle. If you can find star fruit, it would be fun to add one of those, sliced, to garnish the bowl. This is a great dish to accompany the breakfast tacos.

- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup pineapple juice
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger finely grated
- 1 (23.5 ounce) bottle mandarin oranges drained!! (2.5 cups)
- 4 large mangoes peeled and cubed into 1/2 inch chunks (3 cups)
- 1 fresh pineapple peeled and cored (4.5 cups )
- 1 quart strawberries hulled and quartered (4 cups)
- 6 kiwis peeled and sliced (2 cups )
- 1 micro-plane grater
In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, powdered sugar, and ginger until all the powdered sugar is dissolved. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Cut fruit into bite-size pieces and combine in a large bowl. NOTE: If prepping the fruit the day before, don't cut up the kiwi.
Up to two hours prior to serving, peel and slice the kiwi. Add to the salad. Gently stir to distribute.
Immediately prior to serving pour dressing over fruit, toss to uniformly coat and serve.
Did you know ginger can be stored up to 3 months in the freezer. Just peel it, wrap in a freezer proof bag and freeze. When ready to use, you can easily grate it with a micro-plane grater.
