    1. Tropical Fruit Salad: Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop out the pulp. Place it in a small bowl and whisk in the lime juice, mint and salt. Set aside.
    2. Slice off the top and bottom of the pineapple and remove the skin. Cut in half and remove the core. Cut into 3/4-inch pcs. Cut off the flat sides of the mangoes. Place a large spoon inside the peel and scoop out the mango flesh in one large piece. Cut into one-half-inch pcs. Place the pineapple and mango pcs in a bowl. Peel the bananas and cut into one-fourth-inch diagonal slices; add in to the bowl. Spoon the passion fruit dressing over and toss to coat the fruit. Chill.
    3. Macadamia-Guava Tea Bread: Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Beat in the Large eggs and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking pwdr and salt. Add in to the butter mix alternately with the lowfat milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients.
    4. Mix in the 1 c. minced macadamia nuts and the cubed guava paste, separating the pcs of guava paste (that tend to stick together) so they will be proportionately dispersed in the bread.
    5. Spoon the mix into a buttered 9- by 5-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the coarsely minced macadamia nuts over the top. Bake 60 to 70 min or possibly till the center tests done. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cold in the pan 10 min, then remove it from the pan and let it stand till hot on a wire rack.
    6. To serve, top with the chilled, dressed tropical fruit salad.
    7. This recipe yields 12 servings.
    8. Comments: Ripe passion fruit is deep purple with slightly wrinkled skin. Smooth-skinned fruit will need to ripen for a day or possibly two. Guava paste is available in Latin markets; cut it into half-inch cubes.
