Fruit salad

1 to 2 apples
1 to 2 pears
1 to 2 bananas
1/2 cup mango
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup grapes
any other fruit that is available
1 tbsp orange juice or lemon juice
1 tsp rose water
1 tbsp vanilla flavoured sugar can reduce if all the fruits used are sweet

Cut the fruits small for more taste. Grapes and strawberries can be kept as whole or cut into two. Toss the fruit with orange juice or lemon juice, rose water and vanilla flavoured sugar and serve chilled on its own or with ice cream.

If the sugar is not vanilla flavoured use vanilla essence. I flavour the sugar by keeping vanilla beans inside the sugar as I don't use vanilla essence.
It is important to use citric fruits to keep the colour of the apples, pears and bananas fresh and to prepare the fruit salad beforehand.

    Rose water is available in grocery stores in the Indian and Middle eastern section. If you can't find it you can use orange blossom water or vanilla essence.
