Submitted by: RHEYNKLW

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    FRUIT:
    1 pineapple, cubed (5/8 to 1-inch pieces)
    1/2 papaya, cubed (same)
    1 mango, cubed to the best of your ability
    2 kiwis, cut into 1/2-inch-thick quarter-rounds
    2 bananas, sliced (at least 1/2-inch thick)

    DRESSING:
    zest and juice of 1 lime
    3 T agave syrup
    1 t fresh ginger, minced or grated (may sub with 1/2 t dried ground ginger)
    pinch of salt (not joking)

    OPTIONAL GARNISH:
    flaked coconut
    chopped macadamia nuts

Tips

If your knife skills are sharp (haha), or your fruit is already cleaned and cut, this recipe will come together in far less time. (The dressing takes less than 5 minutes from the time you begin looking for your ingredients.)


Directions

Combine fruit in a bowl, the bigger the better.

Scrub, dry, and zest the lime into a small bowl or glass. Roll and juice it, picking out any seeds. Add agave, ginger, and salt, and mix with a fork or whisk until agave is incorporated.

Pour over fruit and stir gently to coat evenly. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, tossing occasionally to redistribute dressing. The longer it sits, the more harmonious the flavors become.

To serve, top with a little coconut and macadamia -- completely optional, but it makes for a nice presentation and provides an interesting textural contrast.

Serving Size: 8 as a side, 6 as a generous dessert, or 4 if you are batty for fruit
