Print Email

Serves 6-8

This salad is highly versatile. Feel free to substitute any fresh fruits you prefer or that are in season where you live. Navel oranges, pineapple, watermelon, cantaloupe, and kiwi are delicious alternatives. For the fullest flavor, serve fruit at room temperature.

2 medium ripe mangoes peeled and cut into thin slices
2 clementines, peeled and sectioned, with white pith removed
2 blood oranges peeled and sectioned, with white pith removed
1 pint strawberries, rinsed, hulls removed, and quartered
1/2 cup jicama, peeled and cut into 1-inch long pieces
1/3 cup sliced kumquats
2 limes
cayenne pepper
coarse sea salt
lime zest curls, for garnish

Place the fruit in a large bowl, and gently toss. Start by sprinkling the fruit with the juice of 1 lime, and season with cayenne pepper and sea salt. Taste it. Then adjust seasonings accordingly. Place in a serving bowl or dish, and garnish with lime zest curls. Serve at room temperature.

Alternative garnishes: unsweetened shredded coconut and fresh chopped cilantro or mint.
