made this tonight for a picnic. Delish! forgot the grapes, but added cherries as suggested. The mint really makes it taste fresh and probably makes people think you spent a lot of time making it.

I just had a fruit salad at this French/Moroccan restaurant in Soho and they put fresh mint leaves on it. I've been eating fruit salads for years and years but the mint added a whole new dimension. It was delicious!!
