My whole family loves fruit. It’s sweet, sticky, and fresh. What’s not to love, right? We are always trying different ways to eat it like in a shake or blended and frozen in popsicles. I wanted to add a little protein to our fruit fascination and came up with this lovely little fruit salad.
I tried this one, with chopped mint in it, but it was a no go for us (Ian’s brother and his wife can attest). The mint became the dominant taste and just didn’t compliment the dish very well.
It is slightly sweetened with honey and just a hint of tart from the lemon juice. It functions as a perfect side to a summer BBQ or a great side dish to take to a potluck or picnic. It would even make for a fresh breakfast treat.
I really like the versatility of the recipe – being that the only stipulation is some kind of fruit. I have made it with blueberries, mangos, and kiwis in it also. I just use a combination of what I have on hand at the time and it makes the salad feel different each time I make it.
