This juicy salad is all about the presentation, so make sure to choose the freshest produce you can find to get the most eye-catching results. Rainbow-hued berries, melons, and summer fruits are arranged in elegant rows and drizzled in a citrus dressing that’s infused with cinnamon and ginger. The slightly sweet sauce ties all the different ingredients together for a cohesive fruit salad that will surely turn heads at your next potluck or BBQ. Serve alongside a pasta dish or veggie burgers for a delicious and nutritious meal.

  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1½ teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ¾ teaspoon arrowroot powder

  • 4 cups assorted salad greens

  • 2 mangoes, seeded, peeled, and sliced or chopped
  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 2 cups green grapes, halved
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 2 cups red grapes, halved


  1. For dressing, in a small saucepan whisk together the first seven ingredients (through ground ginger) until arrowroot powder is dissolved. Heat and stir over medium-high just until thickened. Remove from heat; cool.
