Fruit appetizer salad dessert - tutti frutti all the way

While JIHVA in October celebrates BANANAS, this creation turns out on my table - what you can eat for breakfast, and/or appetizer for lunch and/or simply, a dinner dessert. Call it a fruit salad or tutti-frutti dessert.

Something simple and does not call out any fancy recipe. Most of all, it's healthy and refreshing to start your day with, and eases your hectic work day into a therapeutic mood for a relaxing evening good nights rest.

Tutti-Frutti Salad
Ingredients: bananas, prunes, kiwis, black grapes, red globe grapes, green grapes

Tips for good sleep - Bananas are rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that is converted into the calming and sleep-inducing brain chemical serotonin. You can try a banana instead of a warm milk, when you find yourself tossing and turning the whole night, not being able to sleep tight.

Tips for storage - Banana is sensitive to ethylene gas, and spoils quickly if stored in the same areas as avocados, melons, and apples, which are ethylene producers. Get them segregated and make your bananas last longer.
