My grandma used to make a fruit salad with chopped up bananas, fruit cocktail, and walnuts. Even though it was the easiest salad in the world to make, I just loved it. It was the best after it sat in the fridge for awhile and got really cold. My favorite part was the mushy bananas. ;-)
Even though I love my grandma's recipe, it's starting to be strawberry time in San Diego, so I was inspired to try something new. This Honey Lime + Mint Fruit Salad kicks up a regular old fruit salad a notch with a zesty citrus honey flavor and fresh mint aftertaste. You can use whatever fruit you prefer, but I think strawberries are a must in this one.
Honey Lime + Mint Fruit Salad
Makes 1 medium sized bowl
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 medium bananas, sliced
1/2 container fresh blueberries
3 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (this was equal to 1 1/2 limes, but it depends how juicy your limes are)
1 Tbsp honey or agave (I actually prefer agave because it goes really well with lime juice; margarita, anyone?)
1. Chop up all fruit and mint and toss together in a medium to large bowl.
2. Juice limes until you have 2 Tbsp of juice, then mix with 1 Tbsp honey or agave.
3. Pour juice over fruit and mix to coat.
4. Eat right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Enjoy your bowl full of sunshine!
