I made you a big ol’ fruit salad for the weekend, because…berries. Whenever I see a carton of perfectly ripe, sweet, juicy berries at the market lately, I can’t help but stock up while they’re in season. And last week, my overflowing fridge full of those sweet reds, purples and blues could attest to that.
So last weekend, I combined all of my leftover berries — along with some yummy fresh cherries I received as a surprise in the mail — in a big bowl to make a very berrylicious fruit salad. I tossed it with some lemon juice and a hint of honey, and then added in a small handful of fresh mint from our community garden. And within minutes, this beautiful bowl was ready to enjoy.
And it was berry, berry good. ♥
So if you happen to have a surplus of berries on hand, gather them up and make a fruit salad for yourself!
Just toss a bunch of berries in a bowl (any combination of berries will do)…
…sprinkle some chopped fresh mint leaves on top, and then drizzle on a citrus-honey mixture…
…give it all a good toss…
…and then dive into this fresh and sweet summer treat.
Fun fact — after enjoying this for lunch for a few days, I still had leftovers. So I tried serving this on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert, and it was delish! Then I still had a few more leftovers, so I stirred a handful of it into a glass of red wine and — poof! — instant sangria. So many options. (And extra incentive to make a big batch.) ;)
Hope you all have a berry great weekend and enjoy this salad!
