Fruit Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

A few days ago, someone send me a message asking for a fruit salad suggestion. We exchanged messages on it and I couldn't stop thinking about it after that.

I think the fruit salad with the dressing I suggested should work but I had to try it out just to make sure. Cannot 'sabo' people right? :P Later, it taste horrible, how? :P

Since I had all the ingredients for the dressing and lots of fruits (that I'm trying to clear), I went ahead to try it.

Everything was ok except the dressing smelt a bit strong of the apple cider it had. So I added mint leaves. It helped only a bit but it wasn't as bad when it's added to the salad. It actually goes well with the fruits.

Was a relief for me after that. :P So, note to self, no more kaypo-ness suggestion from me unless I have tried it. :P

These are what I have in the salad bowl:
  • Lettuce
  • Alfalfa spouts
  • Cherry Tomatoes, halved
  • Seedless Red Grapes, halved
  • Blueberries
  • Rock Melon, scooped using melon baller
  • some Orange sacs, optional

The ingredients for the Vinaigrette Dressing, to be chilled before use, are:
  • 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoon Orange Juice (either freshly squeezed or store-bought)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Apple Cider
  • Juice from 1 Lime Juice
  • Fine sugar to taste 
  • 5 Mint Leaves, crushed (removed before serving)
