What Do I Need To Make Mojito Fruit Salad?

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.
- Bring white grape juice (or water) and sugar to a boil; boil about 10 minutes or until thickened.
- 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® For The Win!
The addition of Cuties® to this salad is such a bright and delightful bite. I love citrus in the winter months, and Cuties® are ALWAYS on our shopping list. They are such a delicious and convenient snack, and also the perfect ingredient for many recipes.
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.
Literally Eating The Rainbow
My family adores fresh fruit. It is a favorite for snacks and sides. And when you talk about eating the rainbow – this is quite literal. Look at these gorgeous shades! From blackberries, to kiwi, to pineapple, to Cuties®, to strawberries, and raspberries – this dish is definitely one you will feast with your eyes on first.
Toss Dressing With Fruit
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.
January is always a month for resolutions. Add this fresh and healthy salad, and Cuties® as a snack to your meal plan. This mojito fruit salad is truly the perfect addition to any lunch, dinner or breakfast.
