Tropical Fruit Salad

5 from 4 reviews

Serve this simple tropical fruit salad as-is or over yogurt! It’s made with equal parts watermelon, cantaloupe (or honeydew), and pineapple, with a splash of lime. The trick is to dice your fruit into very small pieces. Recipe yields about 12 servings (12 cups); it’s easily doubled.

  1. In a medium serving bowl, combine the diced cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple and lime juice. Toss to combine. For best flavor, cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before serving.
  2. This fruit salad is best when freshly prepared but keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days.


Recipe inspired by Tabacon in Costa Rica.
