Carambola (kehr-ahm-BOH-lah) is a juicy, sweet-tart fragrant fruit that derives its other name--star fruit--from its shape when sliced crosswise. The skin is edible, so there's no need to peel the fruit.
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh pineapple juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon honey
1 1/4 cups diced peeled papaya
1 1/4 cups cubed fresh pineapple
1 medium carambola (star fruit), cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices (about 5 ounces)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts, lightly toasted
Mint sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Combine mint, pineapple juice, lime juice, and honey in a small bowl.
Combine papaya, pineapple, and carambola in a large bowl. Drizzle honey mixture over fruit, and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with macadamia nuts. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
