FIESTA FRUIT SALAD

This is my favorite summertime fruit salad-- cooling, and refreshing. Beautiful blend of colors and flavors...


If you are tempted to put watermelon because of the bright red color - - don't! Watermelon will react with calamansi and soon will turn bitter.

Summer fruits are nature's wonderful medicine packed with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and many nutrients. Fruits are low in calories and fat and a source of simple sugars.


Ingredients:
1 c lakatan bananas (chopped)
1 c ripe mangoes (cubed)
1 c melon (balls)
1 c canned pineapple tidbits

syrup:
1 c sugar
1/2 c water
2 Tbsp calamansi juice (or lemon juice)
2 Tbsp vanilla

1. Mix all fruits together in a bowl. Set aside.
2. Prepare syrup: In a saucepan, boil sugar and vanilla in water. Let
    cool. Add calamansi juice.

3. Pour sugar-calamansi syrup over mixed fruits. Toss and chill.
    serve cold.
