This was a really delicious easy fruit salad. I did use different fruit from the original recipe, but made the dressing as written. The dressing is wonderful. Light, lemony, and minty. I'll be making this one again.

How much lemon juice? Allergic to eggs, mayo, vinegar and some of the fruits, but this looks like a good option for the dressing portion for salad but nothing listed on amounts of juice....

My family loved this, I was concerned that it might be too minty but they thought it was just right. My wife said It has just the slightest hint mint which gave this a real fresh taste.

Incredible dressing! Have used this many times now. I change up the fruit every time but keep the dressing exactly as written. So fresh and delicious. Thanks.

What a simple and delicous dressing for fruit salad! I ued fresh fruit I had on hand, blueberries, blackberries, and peaches and followed the dressing recipe as written. Simple yet the flavors melded together beautifully.

I made this for a potluck and I got so many compliments. I took the easy route and bought fruit already diced (watermelon, melon, pineapple, strawberries, blue berries, pineapple, and kiwi), up from the grocery store. I eyeballed the amount of honey, mint (used regular - couldn't find chocolate), lemon zest, and lemon juice.

My daughter accidentally grabbed four peaches instead of my preferred four nectarines- but this is still a perfect summertime dessert, potluck dish, light breakfast or a nice touch to a brunch. I had a good feeling about this as I had sampled a watermelon, mint and honey combo at Trader Joe's- simply delicious! The dressing is such a delightful finish! I was out of raw honey, so I went with a Manuka honey I picked up at TJ's. It resulted in a thicker dressing which worked to it's advantage when combining with all the fruit juices. Warning- this recipe makes a HUGE bowl! My girls and I will be sharing with the neighbors. Muy bueno!
