Fruit Salad with Ginger dressing

Several times a year I stop to make homemade ginger syrup to store in my fridge. It makes homemade Gingerale or a lovely hot ginger tea for soothing nausea. It also works beautifully on this fruit salad, which I try to use whenever I have a batch ready,  but I will also share my quick store bought version for this fruit salad  when I don't have time to make a syrup batch.

This fruit salad can be made with any combinations of fruits. Peaches are a week or two away from pick your own season here, so I don't have any to add ,but they would be amazing in this! I used what I had in the fridge: Fresh Pineapple, Strawberries, Green Grapes, Blueberries. Feel free to play with it!
