Gingered Fruit Salad
Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time of year! All the family time, traditions and of course good food! Each family has their own traditions and we are no exception. Fruit salad plays a big part in our Thanksgiving morning.
First off we get up and start to the kitchen to get things ready. We know that we are going to have quite a feast in the late afternoon so we like to eat pretty light until then. We start off with this gorgeous fruit salad. Boy is it tasty! Then in the early afternoon we break out a glorious veggie tray to tide us over until turkey time. After we finish the meal it’s time to put up the Christmas tree! It really turns out to be a perfect day.
A lot of people like to have a fruit salad for Thanksgiving dinner. This recipe totally works as a wonderful side dish as well. It is very fast to put together and adds great nutrition. You have all the healthy fruit, organic cream is a good fat and then you have the ginger. There are so many reasons ginger is good for you! Including activating your appetite and digestive juices. Perfect for turkey day!
There are no real measurements or definite do’s or don’t’s to this recipe. Add whatever fruit your family loves and is in season where you live. You may want more or less ginger depending on how strong you like the flavor. Remember to keep your ingredients organic and pure for a wonderful and healthy Thanksgiving!
