Tropical Fruit Salad

 

A taste of Paradise

‘Ocean breeze, palm trees, fresh salty air and sun kissed hair’.

A smell or taste can instantly trigger a flood of memories. This bowl, with an abundance of fresh tropical fruits, immediately brings me on a trip down memory lane! Flashbacks of an early morning breakfast on a deserted beach on a far away holiday island destination. 

Serve yourself a bowl, relax and ooze away, daydreaming about your favorite holiday…
