Ensalada de Fruta Fresca {Tropical Fruit Salad}

Yes, I know Ensalada de Fruta Fresca is not an exact translation for Tropical Fruit Salad, but it's my blog and I like the way it sounds.  Also, I like the way it tastes.  (Delicious, in fact.)  This recipe is inspired by my mother-in-law who served a very similar and also delicious fruit salad while we were visiting this weekend.

And you know what?  She taught me something new!  Did you know you could freeze fruit salad?  Me either?!  But you can, so hurrah!  You're probably going to wonder why on earth, even if you can freeze fruit salad, you would want to make as much as this recipe calls for.  I'm going to tell you: because it's awesome.

Not only can you eat it as is from a bowl, but you could serve it with cinnamon pitas as a fruit salsa, you could spoon it over vanilla ice cream, you could put a scoop in your morning oatmeal, you could throw some into the blender with a dollop of yogurt for a smoothie, and you could even add some to your banana bread recipe for a little extra yum!
