Kiwi, Banana and Passion Fruit Salad

In the dead of winter season, even the humblest grocery stores on St. Bart’s stock fresh tropical fruits of impressive sweetness. Jean-Georges Vongerichten picked a few of his favorites for this salad.

Components
6 large, ripe enthusiasm fruit, cut in half (see Note).

2 tablespoons sugar.

8 ripe kiwis, peeled and quartered lengthwise.

3 medium bananas, cut into 1/4-inch rounds.

15 pitted prunes, halved.
Instructions.
Working over the screen, scoop the seedy pulp from 5 of the enthusiasm fruits. Transfer the enthusiasm fruit syrup to a medium bowl and stir in the lemon juice. Scoop out the seedy pulp from the remaining enthusiasm fruit into the syrup and stir.

In a bowl, toss the pineapple with the kiwis, bananas and prunes. Include the enthusiasm fruit syrup, toss well and serve immediately.

Enthusiasm fruit’s skin wrinkles when the fruit is ripe; the more wrinkles it has, the riper and sweeter it is.
