This is a good salad and a nice change from the usual salad by using the fruit. The plums seemed to absorb the lemon juice whereas the other fruit didn't have much if any taste of lemon. Honestly, I'm not sure I will make it again, but I am keeping the recipe in my box, just not in my book of "knock your socks off" recipes.
