John said, first thing, that salmon was not a fish you find in the tropics. This was followed by broccoli not being a tropical vegetable. Undaunted I continued with my plans and I think that this colorful plate looks inviting and tropical! The inspiration for this dinner came by way of a lot of leftover fruit salad that I made for brunch with our son’s family on Sunday. It had mango, watermelon, strawberries, pineapple, apples, blueberries, and nectarines in it. I picked out the blueberries and apples which are definitely not tropical and added a Serrano chile, cilantro, green onion, and salt. It went well with the salmon and everything on the plate. Even though we cannot go to the tropics, we can still eat like we are on vacation.
