This cool, creamy fruit salad is an excellent addition to a meal. It is best served slightly cool, but it is also delicious at room temperature. It also has many easy variations based on what fruit you have available.
Serve this with brunch alongside the usual eggs and bacon. Or, turn it into dessert after a rich or spicy meal. The cooling effect works well with spicy dishes such as curries and spicy Mexican food.
Mix up the fruit to serve whatever is in season. Berries and stone fruits would be an excellent combination for summer.
