Note: this is my MIL’s recipe, and it is really quite good. It is so simple, yet looks beautiful and tastes fabulous! The rum as the “secret ingredient” that not only a sweetener, but what allowes the Simple Summer Fruit Salad to keep a few days. My MIL doesn’t like to use bananas, but I do. She prefers pineapple and a melon. As you can see, this recipe is very adaptable to whatever fruit you have on hand!
