A mixture of various chopped fruits, served chilled as an appetizer. Any combination of fruit can be used, though a mixture of tart fruit (such as oranges and pineapples) and sweet fruit (peaches, melons or berries) is most appealing. The fruit may be spiced or drizzled with champagne or liqueur for added flavor. Canned fruit cocktail is available, although the flavors of the individual fruits are barely discernible.
