Fruit Sala

This is very easy and so yummy and pretty healthy. There really is no way to mess this up. It's good as salsa, but also wonderful to put on top of ice cream, waffles or pancakes. You can leave out any fruit you might not like, and add what you do like and it will be just as good.  This is about 275 calories per serving.
