I love fruit salad! My mom always used to make fruit salad when I was a kid, and I was obsessed! Of course, baked goods are a fun treat when you’re wanting something sweet but there’s nothing quite like fruit salad when you want something easy, fresh, and healthy.

Fruit salad is one of the best warm-weather treats when you want to make something that everyone will love but you don’t want to turn on your oven. You can easily make this in under 20 minutes and serve it at a summer BBQ! Or you can just as easily keep it all for yourself for a light and yummy snack.

 

How to make the honey-lime mint fruit salad

  • Add the fruit to a large bowl and combine with honey and lime juice
  • Chop the fresh mint and mix it into the fruit salad
  • Serve fresh or cover to enjoy the next day!

Tips & tricks for this fruit salad

Use fruit that doesn’t brown as easily

Fruit like a banana will brown fairly quickly and will lower the lifespan of the fruit salad. Stick to things like berries and melon to help it last longer.

Use a little extra lime juice to help it to last longer

The lime juice can help preserve the fruit just a bit longer!

Use pre-cut fruit 

If you’re really short on time, take a short cut with pre-cut fruit from the grocery store.
