Happy Friday, everyone!

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!

…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!

  5. Is this a good option to make the night before?

    • Hi Julie! You certainly could, but it may be runny the next day, due to all of the juices from the berries getting mixed with the honey.

  6. Fantastic, even without the mint! This is the second time I’ve made it. As long as the berries are available, this is my go to recipe. Thanks so much!
