Fruit salad is a dish consisting of various kinds of fruit. In different forms, fruit salad can be served as an appetiser, a side salad, or a dessert with a dollop of fresh cream, yoghurt or vanilla ice cream. It is also a delicious, cheap dessert which serves many people depending on the amount of fruit used.

Common fruits used in fruit salads include strawberries, pineapple, sweet melon, watermelon, grapes, and kiwifruit, pawpaw, orange, satsuma or any fruit that take your fancy.
I used the following fruit:
1 cup of mixed green and black grapes
2 kiwi fruits
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons honey (optional)
Prepare the fruit with a small knife, preferably a serrated knife
Peel the fruit, I left the skin on of the peaches
Carefully remove any pips or stones
Half the grapes
Cut all the fruit into even cubes
Carefully layer or add all the fruit into a suitable bowl, I started with the hard fruit first
Squeeze half a lemon over the fruit, especially the bananas to prevent discolouration
Pour the orange and pineapple juices over the fruit
Drizzle the honey over the fruit
Gently mix all the fruit together, cover with a plate of plastic wrap
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or longer, before serving
This salad is tastier the longer you can let it soak in its juices. I prefer 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator before I serve it. Enjoy.
