Thanks for your replies to my post. Though I dont know why this wasnt stuck in recipes per my submission. Oh well at least it went through somehow.  :)


I am embarassed to admit this, but I drove to Rochester to buy mangoes. I had such a craving for fresh fruit other than apples, oranges, and bananas...

Anyway, this was pretty good. I used 2 pineapples, 4 mangoes, peaches, and oranges that I had left over from fruit baskets as well. I left the watermelon out, 'cause I don't really like it that much. I don't know about the cilantro - I like cilantro, but it gave it more of a salsa-esque taste to me. I wound up adding a can of black beans. Next time I might try it with more citrus fruits and leave the cilantro out. The cayenne added a nice kick, though, and a nice contrast to the sweetness of the fruit. I'll probably monkey around with this one more.


FYI, 1/16 cup is 1 tablespoon.
