Despite the quantity of fruit in this recipe, this is a savoury salad. It is beautifully cool and particularly refreshing on a hot summer’s day.


  • flesh of 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 pawpaw/papaya, peeled, seeded and cubed
  • flesh of ½ a melon, cubed
  • 2 kiwi fruits, peeled and sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil seasoning to taste
  • small bunch of chives, finely chopped
  • few sprigs of mint, finely chopped


    Dress the fruits with a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, seasoning and chopped herbs.
