Fruit Salad with Raisins & Rosemary

A while ago, my husband and I went to see a friend’s performance in Echo Park.  We discovered that the show starts only at 11pm. So instead we strolled around the neighborhood and stumbled upon a busy vegan cafe. We weren’t hungry but we always have room for carrot ice cream and a fruit salad.  The ice cream was so good though the fruit salad was wow-wow. The combination of the sweet and citrusy fruits, and piney rosemary was mind blowing!
