What you'll need

  • 2 medium oranges
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 firm-ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe papaya
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground red chile powder (optional)

How to make it

  1. Peel away the rind and the white pith (which tastes bitter) from the oranges and then cut them crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Help your child peel and slice the mango, avocado, and papaya. Arrange the slices in a decorative pattern on a platter. In a bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, and chile powder, if you like. Drizzle the dressing over the fruit. Serve at room temperature. Makes 6 servings.
