1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 cup lemon juice

3 tablespoons sugar

12 fresh mint leaves, chopped

2 ripe bananas

1 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks

1 ripe pineapples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered

1/2 cup red seedless grapes

3 kiwi, peeled and sliced

Directions

  2. Peel and slice the bananas, put in a large bowl, along with the cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries and grapes. Add the crème fraiche mixture and toss gently to coat the fruit with the dressing.
  3. Put the salad into a serving dish or bowl and garnish with the kiwi slices.
  4. Chef's notes:
