Mojito Fruit SaladSubmitted by: *JING*
IntroductionI have made this a variety of ways with different fruits and it never fails to be a hit. My friends call this aphrodisiac salad - you be the judge!

Pineapple, fresh, 2 cup, diced
Kiwi Fruit, 2 fruit without skin, medium
Blueberries, fresh, 1 cup
Mangos, 1 fruit without refuse
Banana - 1 large
Spearmint, 10 leaves
Lime Juice from 3 limes
Apples, fresh, 1 large
1 cup turbinado sugar (optional)
Remove the mint leaves, chop, and set aside.
Chop up all of the fruit and put into a large bowl - make sure all of the fruit is chilled (except the banana, of course).
Add the chopped mint to the lime-mint juice, then pour into the fruit bowl and stir making sure to coat all of the fruit.
Chill or serve quickly.
Makes 8 one-cup servings
Option: To make this more indulgant, make a simple syrup. Mix one cup of sugar and one cup of filtered water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add mint leaves, and allow to steep for half-an-hour, then remove and chop mint leaves. When all of the fruit is in the bowl, pour in the syrup and coat, then add the lime juice and mint.
This adds nearly double the calories, but the taste is truly an aphrodisiac.
Number of Servings: 8
