Tropical Fruit Salad with Coconut Turmeric Dressing

One of my absolute favorite things about Summer is the long hours of sunshine streaming through my windows and kissing my skin. The natural warmth and time it seems to offer to the day feels so generous and overwhelmingly beautiful. While basking in this gorgeous light and thinking about Summer fun times, like 4th of July and beach days, all I could imagine eating was a fresh and vibrant tropical fruit salad that incorporates all the amazing fruits that flourish in Hawaii. And then this happened.

 Whole Food Living Tip: Leave the skin of your kiwi on if you can handle the fuzzy texture, it adds to the fruit's fiber content   Be sure to hashtag your pictures #TempleTurmeric so we can see how yours came out and any tasty tweaks you made. Much love and Mahalo!
