I was attracted to this salad because of it's name – gotta love it!! Well, I’ll start by saying that this is quite the busy salad!! There’s lots of stuff going on here!! I made this as written, with the exception of subbing cantaloupe for the mango. Even though I had pretty sweet cherry tomatoes from the garden, I didn’t think they belonged in this, and would leave them out next time. I doubt they’d be missed. We liked this, but all that fruit really weights down the tender leaf lettuce. I’d suggest a sturdier lettuce, such as Romaine. And I wouldn’t toss this salad with dressing as all your fruit would go straight to the bottom of the bowl due to it’s weight. Instead do what I did and “arrange” the salad on the plate and then drizzle with dressing, if using. Although none was specified, I used some leftover poppy seed dressing, which complimented this well. This was tasty and we enjoyed it, but I don’t think all five fruits are necessary. You could have an equally delicious salad using 2-3.
