Killer fruit salad

I will be the first one to admit that when it comes to eating my daily allowance of fruits and vegetables, I have it more than covered on the veggies tip, but if I eat fruit, it is probably in a smoothie or a bowl of applesauce. I am just not a fruit person. Partly because the only fruits I like are of the seasonal and highly perishable variety.

But I love me some fruit salad, so I decided to make some last night, and I am pleased (and kind of shocked) to tell you that my boyfriend and I have polished off that giant bowl of salad. Already. Less than twelve hours later.

yer favorite fruits
10 or so mint leaves, cut into a chiffonade
half a lime's worth of lime juice

We used: kiwi, bananas, oranges, apples, pears.

Some people are all about dressings on fruit salads and I say BOO to that. Fruit already has enough natural sugars and juices, and adding a dressing on top of all that is like throwing a ratty robe on top of a Marc Jacobs dress.

I use lime just to keep the apples and pears from browning and heighten the mint flavor.
