Minted Honey-Lime Fruit Salad

Monday, September 27, 2010

My kids are not huge fans of cooked veggies, so I'm always looking for fun new ways to serve up fresh fruits and veggies to change things up.  My 9-year-old daughter found this recipe in a cookbook, gave me a grocery list, whipped it up for us, and even took the pictures.  The honey, mint, and lime gave the fresh fruit a perfect splash of flavor, so if you're looking for a unique way to serve up some fruit--this is the recipe for you!

The ingredients:

1 tsp. grated lime peel
2 Tbs. lime juice
3-4 Tbs. honey (depending on the sweetness of the fruit)
3 Tbs. chopped fresh mint
1/2 small honeydew, cubed
1/2 cantaloupe, cubed
1 pint fresh strawberries, halved and hulled
2 cups fresh pineapple or mango cubes

Directions:  In a large bowl, stir together the lime peel, juice, honey, and mint until combined.  Add the honeydew, cantaloupe, strawberries, and pineapple or mango.  Toss to combine. Makes 8 servings.

  Enjoy!
