Not your common bowl of sliced fruit, this salad combines the best of the tropics (mango, papaya, and banana), tossed with cacao nibs and toasted hazelnuts for added crunch and a slight bitterness to offset the sweet fruit. We recommend serving for breakfast with our easy French Toast recipe.

What to buy: Cacao nibs are the roasted nut of the cacao bean with the hull removed. They are bitter and nutty, and can be found at health food stores and online.

Solo papayas are small papayas that have greenish-yellow skin and pink flesh. They are also called strawberry, Hawaiian, or sunrise papayas.

This recipe was featured as part of our Supercharge with Superfoods photo gallery.
