Summer Fruit Salad with Fresh Mint

This colourful combination of fruits is drizzled with a citrus honey dressing and tossed with fresh mint, making a refreshing summer fruit salad! Enjoy it as a cool and refreshing treat or as a topping for pancakes or waffles!

I am always down for a fruit salad whether on its own, or served as a topping for waffles or pancakes. Especially if its on top of waffles and pancakes, actually!

I love a good fruit salad! They’re easy to make, refreshing, and healthy too, making them a go-to way to get in our fruit servings. They’re also perfect for serving up to guests after dinner and that is just what we did with this salad!

Not only does this colourful bowl look lovely when served up to guests, I especially love that I can make it in advance and let it sit in the fridge, ready to go when I need it! It actually tastes better, I think, as it sits in the fridge and the fruit has time to absorb some of the yummy citrus honey dressing!

To make the fruit salad, I placed all of the washed and chopped fruit in a large bowl. Then, I combined honey and orange juice in a jar with a secure lid. I close the lid and shake to combine it well and then pour the dressing over fruit and toss it together. I sprinkle it all with fresh mint and serve!

Hope you enjoy this lovely way to get in your recommended fruit servings!
