This is the most colorful fruit salad I have ever eaten. It looks gorgeous, especially served in a glass bowl. It is very easy to make and is a favorite among our family members. It calls for ingredients I never would have thought to use…mint and ginger ale! You’ve got to try this one; its healthy too! By the way, my mom has made this twice…first for her and her husband, and the second time for our Easter lunch. This comes from Southern Living’s newest cookbook, “Farmers Market Cookbook”.
First you need a quart of strawberries, fresh pineapple, kiwis, pineapple juice, and ginger ale (Central Market didn’t have it, so we had to buy some Jamaican brand).
Simply cut up the fruit and mix it with the juices and sugar and you are finished! Chill for 2 hours before serving.
