This cool, creamy fruit salad is an excellent tonic to a warm day. It is best served slightly cool, but it is also delicious at room temperature if it is a last-minute addition to the meal. Serve this with brunch alongside the usual eggs and bacon. Or, turn it into dessert after a rich or spicy meal.
