Not Your Momma’s Fruit Salad

At the very least, this isn’t my mother’s fruit salad. She’s not particularly keen on ginger or cilantro, both of which play supporting roles in this spicy tropical fruit salad with pineapple, mango, and honeydew melon.

Tomato Avocado Salad w. Mustard Thyme Vinaigrette
