I went searching for a quick and easy summer salad that wasn't lettuce based, tasted great, and had at least some nutritional value. I found a couple that were ok but lacked at least one of the 3 requirements. So, I took a few of the ingredients from each and came up with my own salad. The result is a fruit salad full of flavor as well as refreshing on a hot summer day.
