It's that time!

Summer. It's hot, It's cold. It's Colorado. Fruits and vegetables picked fresh from the local farmer's markets are one of the best ways to enjoy the summer. Plucking from your own garden's first harvests--there's nothing better!
Here is one of my most favorite summertime recipes.
Yummo Fruit Salad:
Two squirts (from a tube) of ginger root
2T of local honey
3T of fresh lemon juice
3T of mandarin orange juice
The zest of both, to taste.
1t poppy seeds
1 mango, chopped
1 banana, sliced
1 mandarin orange cut up
1/2 a pinneapple, dressed, then cut up
1 ripe pear, peeled and cut up
1 large bunch of black grapes, plucked and halved
1 pint of strawberries, sliced
2-3 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1/2 papaya, peeled and diced

Chill for at least 2.5 hours. Enjoy!
