Prep Time : 15 mins
Cook Time : 0 mins
Total Time : 15 mins


  • 2 mangoes – ripe and sweet, medium to large
  • 2 bananas – medium sized
  • 2 to 3 chikoo (sapodilla or sapota) – medium sized, optional
  • 1 papaya – small sized or ½ portion of one large papaya
  •  cup chopped strawberries or 10 to 12 strawberries
  • 3 to 4 figs – fresh
  •  cup pomegranate arils or 1 small pomegranate
  • 2 tablespoon chopped cashews or 10 to 12, optional
  • 2 tablespoon chopped almonds or walnuts, or 10 to 12, optional
  • 2 tablespoon chopped pistachios or 12 to 15, optional
  • 1 tablespoon honey or preferred sweetener – optional
  • 5 to 6 mint leaves – optional, for garnish



  • If using pomegranate, first rinse it very well. Pat dry with a kitchen towel. Chop into halve or quarters and remove the arils first. Place the arils in a small bowl and set it aside.
  • Thoroughly rinse the fruits. Drain all the water. Remove and discard any seeds, stems or peels that are inedible. Chop all fruit into similarly sized pieces.
  • Chop the nuts like almonds, cashews, pistachios or any nuts that you prefer. Feel free to lightly roast the nuts prior to chopping them for deeper flavor.
  • When you have completed chopping all the fruits and nuts, peel and chop bananas.

Making fruit salad

  • Add the chopped fruits, pomegranate arils and chopped nuts in a salad bowl or any large bowl.
  • Add honey or any preferred sweetener. Or you can opt to drizzle honey on the salad while serving.
  • I do not prefer any tangy citrus flavors in a fruit salad. Feel free to add a bit of lemon juice or orange juice if you like to your fruit salad.
  • Gently mix the fruits very well.
  • Serve fruit salad immediately for best results. I usually like to garnish mine with a few sprigs of mint leaves or some chopped nuts.

Serving suggestions

  • This fruit salad is absolutely delicious all by itself, but you can certainly use it to dress up other sweet dishes.
  • It pairs wonderfully with pancakes, crepes, waffles and even french toast or nutella toast.
  • Top your custards, puddings, panna cotta or mousse with it.
  • You can also garnish a cheesecake with the salad or simply serve it with a side of whipped cream or your preferred ice cream.
