    Wonderful and fresh. I loved it and my partner loved it. I served it with basmati and wild rice for a more substantial dinner. It was also very simple to make. As I was cooking for 2 people, I only used the juices collected from the three fruits I segmented, I didn't add more.  -  11 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
