This fruit salad has become a hit in our household. The colorful fruits and leaves make it very tempting. I always have a problem that my family never bothers to eat fruits on their own. I have to personally hand over the fruits to them . Due to this many a times fruits keep on languishing in the refrigerator. Now I have found a solution in this fruit salad. It is tasty, and fruits and vegetables are utilized properly in time.
I make it with strawberries, kiwis and black grapes; though different combination of fruits can be made. I had earlier shared a recipe of fruit chaat, which is much more spicy. Click on the link if you want to see the recipe.
