Tropical fruit salad


Here's my fave fruit salad recipe. It's easy and you can substitute any fruit you have on hand - a great way to use up bits and pieces!


  • 1 medium ripe paw-paw
  • 1 small rockmelon
  • 1 small or ½ medium ripe pineapple
  • 2-3 firm bananas
  • 200 g punnet blueberries OR pulp of 3 passionfruit
  • 2-3 mint leaves, finely sliced
  • Thick vanilla yoghurt or reduced-fat ice cream
