Farmers Market Fruit Salad with a Twist

I’m renaming this Blog  . . . .

Finally Took A Decent Photo!!!

Doesn’t this photo look luscious???  It does to me!  And it tasted just as scrumptious when I was eating it for lunch the other day.

I went to my local Farmers Market this weekend and stocked up on a lot of fruits and vegetables and by the time I got home, I was starving.   Instead of eating what I thought I “should” eat,  which is usually a huge  salad,  I did something really unusual for me . . . I “listened” to my body to tell me what it wanted.  Actually, I “listened” to my cravings which were telling me what my body actually needed.   On this day, my body was craving “sweet”.  So I decided to make a fruit salad instead.  However,  I didn’t want it so sweet that my teeth would hurt.  So I added sliced, cool cucumber for some savory, sodium-rich flavors.  I also decided to grate some ginger over the top to add a kick of spicy heat into the mix!   Voile!  Farmer’s Market Fruit Salad was born!

What I put in my Farmers Market Fresh Fruit Salad

Fresh Strawberries sliced

Fresh Rasberries

Fresh Pineapple

Banana

Sliced Cucumber

Grated Fresh Ginger

Arrange and scoff down!  Or eat gingerly, I scoffed!

Add Whatever you like!

You can add whatever fruits and savory items you like to this salad.  Prefer other fruits?  Listen to your body!  Check your fridge! You can add blueberries, blackberries, grapefruit, oranges, peaches, nectarines, grapes, apples, pears, tangerines, mango, cantaloupe, honeydew, star-fruit, etc.  Add other savory items such as celery, pea pods, raw okra, tomato – – whatever is in season now – – (unless you follow strict food combinations.  Then make acceptable food combinations).

Whatever you decide to make, whatever you decide to add, put your stamp on it — make it your own and

Enjoy!
