I absolutely love this fruit salad and I know you will too!

The flavor of fresh turmeric whispers of the exotic. Subtle yet magic, its flavor transforms everyday fruit salad into something unexpected and deliciously surprising.

If new to turmeric, start conservatively and then add more to taste. And prepare to be delighted.

It’s an easy way to incorporate it into our diets and enjoy some of the health benefits, but it’s actually the flavor itself that sold me on this. It’s soooooooo good! Together with fresh lime and toasted coconut flakes, it’s divine!

This is a salad we made often in our catering business,  for special brunches, bridal showers, baby showers, and on Mother’s day.  Always a hit!

  2. I have enjoyed every recipe that I have tried on your blog. I even enjoy your blog on your family trips. I have shared your blog with my friends.

    I would definitely purchase your cookbook if you are thinking about publishing one.

    1. Bless You! You are so kind, thank you so much. Your supportive words come at such a good time, I really appreciate it Cheryl!!

  3. One can’t find fresh turmeric everywhere? Certainly not here in Nova Scotia, Canada, at any of the oriental grocery stores. I use the powdered version often, as, correct me if I am wrong, it is basically a colorant, certainly in curries, but has little to do with flavoring? Somewhat like Annatto seeds, which I do have, and is a colorant only? Don’t misinterpret my comments, love your blog and your recipes!!.

    1. Hi Frank!
      Thanks for the comment! It’s kind of crazy – Fresh turmeric root is quickly becoming available even at main stream grocery stores around here…I bet you will see some up there in the next year or so. It’s a huge new food trend. The root actually has such an amazingly great exotic flavor…I wish I could send you some to try it!! Can I? I wonder is it legal?

  4. You’ve inspired me to try it! Of course I’ve used powdered turmeric before, but now I have to try it fresh. Yum!!

  5. Oh my gosh I love this! I always try to use more turmeric when I can, but sometimes it is just easier to use powdered, even though fresh has such a nicer taste. Going to try this asap 🙂
