Fresh Fruit + Mint Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

We go through crazy volumes of fruit in our house. I don’t know many people who don’t enjoy fruit, but it’s the one food group that all of our kids agree upon and love wholeheartedly. This fruit salad is another gem from The Joyful Kitchen ladies. I have made it the last two weekends and I love, love, love it. The addition of mint just kicks it up and makes it taste so, so fresh and delicious.

I don’t really think it matters what fruits you choose, I’ve changed it up each time and it was equally delicious.

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
