Scrumptious new fruits are back in season at my local supermarket. I am over the strawberries, the last few punnets I have had hidden mushy ones on the bottom, not impressed.
Have you tried paw-paw (also known as papaya)? It’s an acquired taste. It has a flavour somewhat similar to a banana and mango. I don’t enjoy paw-paw on its own, but my Nan used to make this delicious fruit salad which I make for my kids regularly too. They love it, especially it sits all day, marinating in all the fruit juices.
Simply add the following to a bowl and sit in the fridge for a few hours before eating:
- 1 paw-paw, deseeded
- 2 oranges, diced
- 2 passionfruit
What is your favourite fruit salad combo?
