There's nothing more refreshing than a juicy fruit salad at brunch. I was shopping in Chinatown and found some mangosteens (no relation to the mango, has segments like a tangerine) in a produce market. Mangosteens are beautiful red-skinned fruit with sweet, juicy white pulp inside. The exotic and tropical fruits may be difficult to find but this salad will taste just as good without them.
