Summer Fruit Salad

Such a great summer fruit salad!  Packed with juicy flavors to enjoy on a hot summer day.  And great colors for a fourth of July event.  Trust me you’ll have enough for a nice size party.  It’s so simple and yet so delicious.

 

Ingredients

Salad:

1 Seedless Watermelon (cut into small cubes)

2 pints of Strawberries (diced)

2 pints of Blueberries

1 pint of Blackberries

1 pint of Raspberries

-Optional- 1 pint of pitted cherries and small star cut outs of honey dew

Dressing:

½ cup of chopped fresh mint

1 cup honey

½ cup of lime juice (5 to 6 limes squeezed)

-Optional – instead of mint you can use poppy seeds

 

Directions

  1. Rinse and clean all fruit (you can rinse with water, vinegar and even baking soda to make sure it’s clean).
  2. Slice and dice the watermelon into small cubes (approximately ½ inch in size) and place in a large dish that can be sealed.
  3. Cut the leafy ends off of the strawberries and dice them into small bite size pieces.  Add them to the large dish.
  4. Sprinkle in blueberries, blackberries and raspberries.  Stir/mix until there is a nice mix of the colors of fruit.
  5. Slice and squeeze the limes into a small bowl.
  6. Either chop fresh mint or sprinkle poppy-seeds into the lime juice.
  7. Whisk in the honey and continue whisking until everything is blended nicely.
  8. Add the dressing last and mix well (I usually do it a few hours before serving so there is good flavor).
