Comments

This salad is excellent!  The dressing provides just the right sweet/tart combination.  I did not achieve the same brightness of the salad pictured, because I used yellow kiwis (all the store had)--still good, but not a lot of contrast between the apple and banana, which would have been a achieved using green kiwis. I used a Gala Apple, and apple cider vinegar.  This salad would lend itself well to different fruit combinations--strawberries, green grapes, peaches, etc. It would make a good BBQ or potluck dish.
