VERY, VERY NICE! I especially liked the combo of strawberries, a nicely ripe & sweet cantaloupe & the pistachios! AND, of course, the chocolate! A GREAT FRUIT DISH, & a keeper, too! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]

This was an usual twist on the common fruit salad. I used Homemade Tahini! for the tahini. There was so much ganache left over that I had enough to serve over ice cream the following evening. Thanks for creating this and good luck!
