I have to admit…I don’t love fruit. It is a struggle for me to eat it on a daily, much less a weekly basis. You can put any vegetable in front of me and I will eat it, just not fruit.
As much as I don’t like fruit, I love to buy it. I get so excited when I find a great deal on fresh fruit. Plus, all 3 of my boys will practically eat any kind of fruit.
I found some baby watermelons and fresh pineapple at The Fresh Market. I thought it would be kinda fun to experiment and make a fruit salad. I added a plum and grapefruit that a co-worker brought back from Florida.
I thought by making an easy & flavorful fruit salad I would have no excuse not to eat it!
I decided to make a simple dressing for the fruit salad using lime juice, honey & fresh mint. The mint really helped elevate the flavors of the fruit, while the lime juice brightened everything up.
My littlest snuck into this picture. He is only 6 but he loves to help me cook.He is great at chopping ingredients so I let him work on the plums.
Fresh fruit is such a great, natural source of vitamins & fiber. Check it out!
I have to admit, this fruit salad kinda won me over. I loved the extra sweetness the honey added. The mint was just the extra kick that took it up a notch in flavor.
This easy fruit salad would be a great addition to your next Sunday morning brunch or even packed away in individual containers for lunches the next day. I hope that you enjoy!
