This is one of my favourite dishes for a hot summer lunch. Fresh fruits are tossed with salad greens and then dressed in a syrupy sweet and spicy dressing that is inspired by a thai salad. This salad is a visual delight that is rich in iron, fibre, vitamin c and fructose.

A very unusual dressing! Loved the idea of lettuce with fresh fruits. I found the syrup kind of sugary for my taste but others enjoyed that too! A nice summer appetizer!
