This unusual salad is great with Mexican food. The addition of fruit gives this salad an interesting and refreshing taste.

1 red onion, sliced thin (1 1/4 cups)
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lime juice

1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
Cut fruit in bite-size pieces. Toss with lettuce and onion. Mix remaining ingredients for dressing. Drizzle over salad and toss just before serving.
