Tropical Fruit Salad Recipe


It is a simple and refreshing tropical fruit salad starring pineapple, mangoes, papaya, and kiwi coated in a lemon, passion fruit, guava dressing. It’s the perfect combination of summer tropical fruits!
You know by now that I’m obsessed with anything tropical. During our recent trip to Hawaii, I temporarily forgot my love for a bread basket and it was replaced with fruit bowls. I ate it for breakfast, lunch, as snacks, and even during late-night movie time. Imagine!!! Me, killing some time with the TV while munching on fresh tropical fruits. I thought it was going to be forever!

This tropical fruit salad is an inspired dish from that trip and I’ve been making this more often lately to make use of the fresh summer fruits. It can be eaten for breakfast, as a light dessert every after a meal or during snack time. So far, this is the simplest fruit salad you’ll ever make and hopefully will be the most flavorful one.

  • 5 kiwi, sliced
  • 1 pineapple, cut into bite-size chunks
