Tropical Fruit Salad / Fruit Chaat

It is seven days of salad here at my place! This is the fifth salad of the week! After looking at a lot of salads ranging from veggies, to pastas, to wholegrains, I wanted to make a fruit salad for today! I chanced upon this fruit salad and I liked the Indian touch to the salad.

I made this after lunch and it was a guilt-free treat! I like the addition of fresh mint which gives a whole new flavor to the fresh fruits. The fruit chaat and the kala namak render their all-indian touch! I made this with fruts available in my pantry and the fruits can be varied according to the availability by season.

Ingredients (for 1 serving)
Apple - 1/2
Banana - 1/2
Oranges - 1/2 ( I used one of these cuties)
Blueberries
Cranberries
Fresh lemon juice - 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
Kala namak/black salt/pink salt to taste
Fruit chaat masala - 1 pinch

Directions
Chop the fruits into bite sized pieces. Drizzle the lemon juice and mix well.
Sprinkle the kala namak and chaat powder as per your taste and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
Serve chilled!
