Good Food Friday : Fruit Salad with Coconut Dressing

Summer fruits are in full swing and I must say I am a massive fan. This time of year the fruit is so wonderful and delicious – my fridge is overflowing with produce. In fact, I had to get a new fridge. The fruit and veg section of the old one collapsed! That’s how much I pack in there!

This recipe isn’t any ordinary fruit salad. It has a dressing on it which is absolutely delicious. It contains coconut milk which has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is as a remarkable medicinal food used to treat a host of issues including mouth ulcers and works equally well the on gastrointestinal tract to treat any types of ulceration.

This is good enough to add to the table at your next dinner party – your guests will walk away happy and most of all with a healthy belly full!

    From pomegranates – they are the part of the pomegranate that you eat.
