Because it's too hot for anything else and that's what the kids asked for?

Hell yes it is. I still remember getting to have Fruit Salad for tea one really hot night when I was a kid.

We have started doing this! my DD ( 9) and I cut up a big plate of fruit and my 20 month old son and husband dish out lashings of different flavored yogurt then we grab the picnic rug and go sit out in the backyard and have a picnic dinner  biggrin.gif  

We do the same with a cheese platter or cut veggies and dips too.. nice, simple and quick dinners that are very much enjoyed by all !

Fruit salad and yoghurt drizzled with passionfruit pulp. Yum!

In the absence of yoghurt whipped cream works a treat... wwhistle.gif

Chop the fruit up arrange on a plate add a pice of bread and butter and it's a mezze plate - very fancy dontcha know. In our house otherwise known as messy plate and can contain any fruit and left overs or bits and bobs you have lying around. Dd aged 7 is a known culinary master in creating messy plates for everyone. Yay winning !
