Cucumber and fruit salad

Talk about a multi-tasking recipe! Cucumber and fruit salad is just that. Enjoy this dish for breakfast, lunch or a main meal. So quick and easy and just so delicious you will want to have this time after time.  In fact why not make life easy and multiply up the ingredients to feed yourself, partner or children for the next couple of days. Keep the made-up cucumber and fruit salad in the fridge to keep it fresh and the dressing in a separate jar or container and add it as required to avoid the cucumber and fruit salad becoming soggy.
