Chef Mary shares her recipe for a refreshing fruit salad–the sweet flavors make this a perfect side dish or dessert.
Yield: 8 one-cup servings
Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Note: Use any combination of fresh seasonal fruits, totaling 8 cups
1 large ripe but still firm mangos or peaches, peeled, and cut into chunks
1 ½ cups ripe pineapple cut into bite-size chunks
1 cup blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, or sliced strawberries
1 cup firm, red seedless grapes
1 ½ cups ripe seedless watermelon cut into bite-size chunks
1 ½ cups ripe cantaloupe, seeded and cut into bite-size chunks
¼ cup honey
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp. fresh mint leaves, chopped
1. Rinse and allow any berries and grapes to air dry. Gently mix all fruits together in a large bowl then cover and chill fruit while making the dressing.
2. In a small sauce pan, over medium-low heat, warm honey and lime juice together, stirring frequently until honey has dissolved. Remove dressing from heat and cool 10 minutes; stir in mint.
3. Cover and allow to continue cooling to room temperature. Chill at least 1 hour before adding to fruit salad.
4. Once dressing has chilled, gently stir into fruit. Cover and chill salad several hours before serving.
