Winning Recipe: Eye Pleasing, Great tasting Tropical Fruit Salad With Papaya.  Submiteed by: NavaYaH 

Her Recipe:

Eye Pleasing, Great tasting Tropical Fruit Salad

1/2 cup ripe fresh papaya chunks
1 ripe mango
1 ripe banana
1 Strawberry Pear [also know in the Asian stores as Dragon Head Fruit] chunks
2 ripe peaches chunked [peelings on]

All chunks about 3/4-1 inch square or so. The colors are all so vivid together. Your guests will not want to resist. When you peel off the brilliant red skin off the Strawberry Pear, the surprising white flesh with tiny black seeds [similar looking to a kiwi inside] are a real surprise and brightens up the whole dish. If you cannot find a Strawberry Pear, substitute 2 peeled kiwis chunked.

Serve chilled.

Best made in season so all the fruits are ripe and sweet. No need for sweetener!
Otherwise, you might add a bit of raw blue agave.
