Ingredients
  • 1 orange
  • 2 apples
  • 5-10 grapes
  • 1 green kiwi
  • 1 pineapple slice
  • Whipped Cream for topping
  • Mint (optional)
Instructions
  1. Prepare a bowl to mix your fruit salad in. Wash all your fruit beforehand under cold water.
  2. Begin by segmenting the orange. There is more than one method to do this, the most popular being either with a knife cutting out the segments or else peeling and tearing them out one by one by hand. If you prefer, you can substitute the orange for a clementine, blood orange, or half of a grapefruit.
  3. Put all the segments into the bowl, and then prepare the apples. Pare, core and chop them into cubes of an inch or medium slices, depending on your preference. Scrape them into the bowl with the oranges.
  4. Remove the grapes from the stems if necessary, and then slice each in half. If there are seeds, remove them if possible. Add the grapes to the bowl.
  5. Peel the kiwi or slice it in half then carefully spoon it out. Cut it in half then half again lengthwise, and then slice to about a centimeter of thickness. Put the kiwi pieces gently into the bowl. Chop up the pineapple slice into similarly sized pieces and add to the bowl as well.
  6. Mix everything up gently so as not to damage the fruit. If you want, you can add a few mint leaves or one or two teaspoons of finely diced mint to the mix to add an extra delicious flavor. Plate the fruit salad up onto two plates or glasses, or one small serving dish, and top it with the whipped cream.
  7. Put a single mint leaf on top for nice color and a delicate garnish effect.
