Recipe by MsSally
Just plain fruit salad, nothing fancy, just pure fruit. This is great to make up and have in the fridge. It lasts about 5 days without getting too mushy.

I used all fresh fruit (Valencia oranges for canned mandarins) and included everything but the blueberries. I also added some red grapes with the green. A small-emphasis on small, amount of freshly ground cloves was added (probably no more than 1/16 teaspoon.) Why cloves? I read somewhere online that one of the flavors in Juicy Fruit Gum is clove. True or not I thought that sounded good for this recipe. The salad does taste better the next day but then by that time the fruit has started to soften. That citric acid is going to break down the fruit and quickly especially the bananas. Probably best to eat the salad same day it is prepared. Thanks! Will make again soon in the summer when local berries are more abundant, including blueberries and blackberries.
