Wonderfully delicious!! I only used half a jalapeño (because of children) and omitted the jicama(didn't know if ID like it) and it was outstanding! Best substitution for traditional fruit salads. Everyone loved it & now I must bring this & my Mac n cheese to every cookout!

This was a huge hit!! I didn't use jalapeno since there were lots of kids as guests. Mint adds such a refreshing flavor and everyone loved it. It's so easy to make. It is not ordinary "fruits salad" and I will definitely make this again and again!

What a refreshing alternative to a fruit salad! I couldn't wait to bring this as a side dish to our neighbor's party.
