Exotic Fruit Salad

The star of this nutritious fruit salad is the Victoria pineapple, also known as the Baby Queen Victoria pineapple, common rough pineapple, Zululand pineapple and baby South African pineapple. It is small, standing only 4 to 5 inches tall, and is sweeter, more aromatic and more nutrient-packed than more common varieties. But, if you can't find one of these babies, substitute a cup or two of any fresh pineapple chunks.
