This salad brings Hawaii to your home.  Make it in the cool of morning, and serve it in the heat of the day for lunch or dinner.  I learned how to make it at Kilohana Plantation in Lihue, Kauai.  My video provides some tips on cutting up the pineapple

1 pineapple (of course, a sweet Maui-grown pineapple is choice)
1 papaya (I love the sunrise variety of papaya)
2 bananas (on Kauai you can get the superior apple banana)
          Cut up in similar-sized pieces. 

handful of mint, chopped fine
1 lemon
          Sprinkle on the mint, squeeze on the lemon.  Mix gently.
