Tasty Tuesday: Costa Rican Fruit Salad

I'm not sure if this is a real thing, but I had it multiple times while I was in Costa Rica. It is super easy to make, and my family really enjoyed it a lot. It is a sweet, refreshing, flavorful dessert. (In Costa Rica this was called "ensalada de frutas", or, "fruit salad.")

1-2 cans tropical fruit
     (Or, fresh chopped pineapple and papaya)
1 box of strawberry jello
1 tub of vanilla ice cream

1. Prepare jello ahead of time, so it is solidified when it is time to serve.
2. Scoop fruit on one side of the bowl, scoop jello on the other side of the bowl and scoop ice cream in the middle.
3. Eat! Enjoy!
