Martha likes to let the market guide her choices about which fruits to include. Choose a wide variety of textures, colors, and flavors for your salad. Try other combinations later in the year.

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3-inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 orange, segmented
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 2 plums, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup pineapple, 1/2-inch diced
  • 2 nectarines, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut, plus more for garnishing
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons amaretto


  1. Make ginger syrup: In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, ginger, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, and lower heat to medium. Cook for 20 minutes; set aside to cool.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together kiwis, orange, blackberries, plums, pineapple, nectarines, and coconut. Drizzle about 1 cup ginger syrup over the fruit mixture. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir the fruit.

  3. Place heavy cream and confectioners' sugar in a large bowl. Using a wire whisk, whip cream to form soft peaks. Fold in amaretto.

  4. Spoon 2 tablespoons whipped cream into each of six glasses, then some fruit; continue until the glasses are topped with 1/4 cup cream. Sprinkle with coconut, and serve immediately.
