Easy but impressive fruit salad

fruit2 Easy but impressive fruit salad
I made this for a potluck yesterday – I had no time and nearly nothing in my kitchen but managed to pull together this dish. It’s impressive-tasting, but surprisingly simple.

Tropical Fruit Salad

1 mango
2 bananas
1 orange
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
freshly squeezed lemon juice from 1/4 of a lemon
honey (optional)

Chop the fruit and mix all the ingredients together. This is so good!

fruit Easy but impressive fruit saladI had extra mint leaves from my spring roll experiment, so that’s why I threw them in. The lemons are (again) fresh from the backyard. Add any other fresh, seasonal fruit that you can find – strawberries would be really great here, and they’re just coming into season! Navel oranges are everywhere, and I love them in fruit salads. Just make sure that if you get oranges with seeds that you take the seeds out.

    YUM! This looks so delicious! I’m going to file this little gem of a salad away for future reference.

    I was just thinking about fruit salad the other day, and I remembered one that I made last summer for a barbeque. I can’t remember the exact fruits (must have been some blueberries, peaches, apple..maybe more), but the ‘dressing’ I concocted was really yummy: I used fresh, local honey from the farmer’s market, some lemon juice, and a few fresh, organic lavender flowers. The subtle floral hint of the lavender was AMAZING and the fresh honey just brought it all home…Try it sometime!!!
