Honey Lemon Mint Fruit Salad

I thought I’d give myself a break from writing about the stresses and joys of nursing school, and post this yummy recipe I snagged from Pinterest! Isn’t Pinterest just amazing? It is honestly the quickest and yummiest fruit salad I have ever had! Pretty, easy, colorful, and intricate tasting recipes make me feel like Julia Child, like I am unlocking my inner culinary goddess, or beast. Haha!

Cause clearly this lady knew what she was talking about.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Sweet Dressing:

  • 2 large lemons
  • Mint leaves (to taste)
  • All natural honey (none of that honey bear stuff, even though its cute)
  • Natural vanilla flavor (or artificial, to taste)

Salad:

  • Any type of fruits you’d like, I used:
  • Honeydew Melon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Strawberries
  • Pineapple
  • Grapes
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Blue Berries

Mix the lemon juice, the natural honey, a hint of vanilla, with the mint leaves after cutting and washing. Whisk until uniform liquid consistency. I love minty flavors, so I added more mint than usual, I am lucky to have mint plants in my back yard, as well as a lemon tree. If you prefer a more subtle flavor, about 4 mint leaves should do.

Cut fruit to preference, I like my fruit pieces chunky. Add the more delicate fruit on top since you don’t want it to get squished with  the other fruit. I added my berries last, this ensures you don’t have a smoothie! And enjoy! Healthy and yummy!

It sure beats donuts! Sometimes. IMG_8812 IMG_8829-1
