Fresh fruit marinated in orange and litchi juice with just a hint of almond.

TIME: Preparation takes about 1 hour and the salad should be left to marinate for at least 3 hours.

SERVING IDEA: Cut a few fresh mint leaves into thin strips to garnish the fruit salad just before serving.

WATCHPOINT: Exotic fruit often arrives in the ships before it is ripe. The solution is to sweeten the sauce slightly before marinating the fruit in order to eliminate acidity.

BUYING GUIDE: If any of the fruits are out of season and unavailable, substitute other appropriate fruit, as desired.
