    Chinese Fruit Salad

    The clean flavour of the lychees marries well with fresh pineapple, clementines and slivers of stem ginger. Physalis in their paper lanterns add the last exotic touch. Although cream is not normally used in Chinese cooking, the fruit salad is delicious served with cream laced with a couple of drops of almond essence.
