Tell Me About The Dressing!

I wanted my little fruits to shine on their own, yet add a subtle, fresh twist. Mint!

Make your simple syrup with juice, lime juice, and honey. Together these flavors create a mojito-esq dressing that is the perfect complement to your fresh fruit.

  1. Bring white grape juice (or water) and sugar to a boil; boil about 10 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Add lime juice and mint.  Cool completely.

Let’s Talk About The Fruit

You will need six cups of fruit for this salad.  Use what’s in season.  Here I’ve used strawberries, raspberries, Cuties® (mandarins). pineapple, kiwi, and blackberries.  In the summer, I mix it up and add peaches and mango.

Cuties® Are For Kids

My kids LOVE Cuties®.  Like, love love.  They eat several a day as snacks.  I always put one in my son’s school lunch. We put them in the bottom of stocking this past Christmas.  They are a staple on our road trips. Cuties® are easy to peel which make them perfect for little hands – they definitely have Snack A-peel.  They are definitely a snack I feel good about feeding my little cuties.

Once your fruit is washed and chopped, toss it with your cooled dressing.  The sweet and minty dressing brightens all of the flavors and adds a subtle sweetness that pulls everything together.

  1. We used peaches, nectarines, strawberries, blueberries and grapes for this salad. Added the juice of one medium lime to the syrup and did add grape juice instead of water. The dressing was so good on the mixed fruit and cant wait to try it again with different fruit. Made and reviewed for the What’s On The Menu recipe tag game.
