Step 1
Use a microplane or fine grater to grate Fresh Ginger (1 inch) onto a cutting board or into a bowl.
Step 2
Set a fine mesh strainer over a small microwaveable bowl. Transfer ginger pulp and any juices to the strainer. Press down on the pulp with the back of a spoon to capture the ginger's juices in the bowl. Discard solids.
Step 3
Add half the Jalapeño Pepper (1), Lime (1/2), and Honey (1/4 cup) to the ginger juice.
Step 4
Microwave for 20 seconds on high. Stir. Microwave another 20 seconds or until mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool while you prep the fruit.
Step 5
Place Orange (1), Kiwifruit (1), Fresh Strawberries (1), Banana (1), Star Fruit (1), Grapefruit (1), Pineapple (1) in a medium bowl.
Step 6
Add the remaining minced jalapeño.
Step 7
Toss the salad with dressing just before serving.
