Several years ago I had a delicious fruit salad at a bed & breakfast I was staying it. It was so good, in fact, that I've been trying to replicate it on my own ever since! Well, to my great thrill this one has done it! I love the addition of mint in this salad, and after it marinates for a while it is even better. Fabulous!

Peel the apples, cut into bite sized pieces and place into a bowl of water with the juice of the lemon to keep from browning and set aside.

Remove the grapes from the stems and set aside.

Cut all the remaining fruit into bite sized pieces and place into a large bowl.

Drain the apples, combine all of the cut fruit, add the sugar, mint, basil, vanilla and optional coconut and gently toss.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Serve in a bowl and top with a dollop of whipped cream

We are planning vacation as a family in a few weeks and I have been on the lookout for ideas using fresh fruit as a side dish instead of the traditional potatoes made everyway. This sounds really good and I will be trying it.

Hi Robin!

I make a fruit salad that's similar to yours only I add 2 cups of sour cream and no coconut

Hi Paul, by adding the sour cream that would be Ambrosia.

Ah yes, so it would be! Been along time since I've made any!
