Personnally, I would use any combination of seasonal fruits, cut into bite size pieces, or even add other fruits that look good in the supermnarket. I love mixing the colours as well. My mother in law adds in tinned fruits. Add lemon juice and a little fruit juice. For a zest taste, add some lemonade just before serving.

I usually make a tropical fruit salad that my kids love. It consists of cubed mangos, pineapples, water melon, pawpaw, then cut up passion fruit and empty it's contents in the salad. It's really yummy.

I love fruit salad...I usually make it with any assortment of bite-sized fruit. Also top it with the best sauce ever: I can marsh mellow mix with 1 box of cream cheese. I could dip just about anything in there and it would come out yummy!!

I grab whatever's in season and add nothing else to it. At serving time, either icecream or plain (or vanilla) yoghurt, but that's pushing the limit.

I love making a fruit salad using a mixture of any fresh / canned fruit, and adding a tin of boysenberries. It makes the salad a lovely pink colour, and tastes great.

On that sunshine fruit salad, we use the cherry pie filling instead and call it pink cloud :)
