Radiance Fruit Salad















I found this recipe from Food Network chef Ellie Krieger last summer when searching for a fruit salad recipe.  I was assigned "fruit" to bring to Matt's family's annual summer BBQ and wanted to show up with more than just a watermelon tucked under my arm.  This is now my go-to fruit salad dish and I make it every chance I get.  It's especially delicious when it's sunny and warm out, which it hasn't been much of lately, because the cold fruit topped with mint and lime is incredibly refreshing. If you live in Washington State like us, the only state in the U.S. with temps below 100 degrees right now (we're still in the 60s to be exact, with some random 70-80 degree "scorchers"), you'll still love this...just minus the sun and warm weather.

Radiance Fruit Salad

What You Need:
  • 1/3 cantaloupe, cut into 3/4-inch chunks (about 2 cups)
  • 1 (16 oz) container strawberries, quartered (about 3 cups)
  • 5 medium kiwis, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint leaves
What You Do:
  1. Place all of the fruit into a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the honey, lime juice, zest, and mint.
  3. Right before serving, pour the dressing over the fruit and toss gently to combine.
