Starry fruit salad

Do you want to bring healthy dishes to your family potlucks ... but you're tired of the same old fruit salad everyone seems to bring?

Then be creative! Try using star fruit. They're inexpensive and easy to find.

The only thing you have to know is to slice on the edges of the fruit. Then, slice off the ends, too.

Now, slice down the fruit making each piece about 1/4 of an inch thick. Remove any seeds before adding to the salad. I like to save the star fruit until last, so they show on top!

Star fruit is great with grapefruits.. so peel and slice your grapefruits, removing any skin. (This will make them less bitter.) Squeeze the excess juice left on the rind directly onto the salad!

I also sliced oranges and added dark cherries (and any of their juice.)

Remember to use all fresh fruits.. not the canned and sugared variety. Your guests will love it!
