Summer Fruit Salad with a Lemon, Honey, and Mint Dressing

It’s summer. We all feel it. Sometimes it’s nice to come home to something cool in the afternoon or the evening. Here is a recipe by TimTanguay (found on allrecipes.com), to cool you off when it’s just too hot to eat anything heavy. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare and an hour and a half to be ready to enjoy with family, friends, or neighbors. The recipe serves 8, and is only 101 calories per serving! Imagine that!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 large fresh peaches, cut into cubes
  • 2 large nectarines, cut into cubes
  • 1 large Anjou pear, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup seedless grapes, halved
  • freshly squeezed juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh mint
  • 1/2 lemon, zested
  • 1 tablespoon honey (fireweed honey preferred)
  • Optional: add one tablespoon of dark chocolate flakes to the fresh mint
Directions:
  1. Combine watermelon, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, pear, and grapes in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk lemon juice, mint, lemon zest, and honey together in a small bowl; drizzle over the fruit mixture and toss to coat.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
