Paw Paw (Papaya) Fruit Salad

Always a favorite, this easy to prepare fresh fruit salad is spectacular when served as a center piece for a dinner party or buffet. Recipe serves 6-8.


1/2 paw paw, cut in small squares
2 oranges, cut in segments
3 kiwi fruit (gooseberries), sliced
Small bunch sultana grapes
Small bunch Cardinal grapes
2 passion fruit, pulp only
1 banana, sliced
1/4 pineapple, cut into small squares
1/2 pound (250 g) strawberries
6 mint leaves
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons Grand Marnier (optional)


1. Place all of the cut fruit into a large glass bowl and mix with hands.
2. Pour lemon juice over the fruit salad; this will bring out the flavor of the paw paw.
3. As an optional extra taste delight, pour over Grand Marnier. Serve as a center piece on a buffet table.
