Summer Fruit Salad

Refreshing, fruity and light, this simple summer fruit salad is a tried and true! It combines fresh fruit with the aromatic, cool flavor of mint and a just hint of tartness from the lime juice. And, it turns out it is pretty healthy too!

Why I love this summer fruit salad:

This recipe is actually a tried-and-true recipe. It was my absolute favorite when I was pregnant and couldn’t get enough fruit. Seriously, isn’t every pregnant chick in the world is crazy for fruit? Yes. They are. I had lost the recipe for a while but luckily, a few weeks ago, I was cleaning out my “office” and I found a notebook with random notes and recipes in it – and this was one of them. Of course, I was so, so excited so I thought I’d share it with you!

What you’ll need to make it:

How to make summer fruit salad

Chop and slice the fruit and mint leaves and toss into a large mixing bowl.

Squeeze the lime juice over the bowl and stir gently to combine.

You will want to place the bowl in the refrigerator to allow the juices to absorb and saturate and merge all the yummy flavors together!

  1. This is the sweetest thing ever!! Thank you 🙂 I posted this in my birth month group and everyone was drooling over how good it looked – I have totally not been eating any fruit lately but I could down heaps of this! I need to make it.. but I’m so lazy! This is why you need to move next door.. just cancel the contract on your house, no biggie! 😀

    1. No seriously, you move here!! I couldn’t take the heat there. It’s like 90 here today and I want to die! But, I do want to come down to visit and go to that weird barbecue place.

  2. Your pictures always look so beautiful and delicious. I think the virtual baby shower was a big success! Hope everyone is enjoying the recipes as much as I am!!

  3. This fruit salad looks incredible, and since I’m not pregnant, a splash of rum wouldn’t hurt either would it? haha I want to just dive into that bowl! Pinned. 🙂
