Tropical fruit salad with Passion fruit Sorbet

What a lovely way to get 2 of your 5 a day! If you have never tried passion fruit, you are really missing out. Purple passion fruit are best eaten when they are a bit wrinkly as they are sweeter, so pop in the fruit bowl for a day or two if you need to. You eat the seeds (extra fibre!) too and their strong juice is a great match for the mango and pineapple.
