A Tropical Treat
Ok, so this fruit salad wouldn’t exactly qualify as localvore fare. But it got a stamp of approval from our local food co-op. I couldn’t stop scooping up samples of this concoction with graham crackers there. It’s a simple fresh salad of chopped papaya, mango, banana, kiwi, dried coconut and I added some orange to the mix. Nothing more. The crunchy kiwi seeds and nutty coconut provided a nice texture. And hey, at least the kiwis were of Oregon origin. You should make this dessert for your Valentine’s Day honey. It’s chock full of aphrodisiacs: banana, papaya, maybe even mango? Isn’t all fruit sexy in its own womb-like way?
