Fruit salad is just a bunch of fruit that gets chopped up and mixed together. It seems to be a popular picnic food, which is a bit of a misstep as it always attracts flies. Itís mostly popular in America, as itís unlikely that any other country would consider it a dish (let alone, salad) of its own.
The quality of fruit salad is totally dependent on its ingredients. They donít really influence each other much, they merely share a given metric space (in a bowl).
Fruit Salad became an official snack on June 23rd 2012.
