  1. Prepare the Fruits:
    • Wash all the fruits thoroughly and let them air dry or pat them dry with a paper towel.
    • Peel the fruits as needed and cut them into bite-sized pieces, ensuring they are roughly the same size.
    • Halve large grapes. If using canned pineapple, drain the juice before using.
    • Cut the bananas and apples last to prevent browning before adding them to the salad.

    • Add the banana and pomegranate seeds, mixing gently to incorporate them.
  4. Chill the Salad:
    • Cover the salad and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours to allow the flavors to meld. If letting it rest, add the bananas and pomegranate seeds 1-2 hours before serving to keep them fresh.
  5. Serve:
    • Garnish with fresh mint leaves before serving for an extra burst of flavor and color.
