cubed seeded watermelon
hulled and quartered strawberries
peeled and quartered kiwi
fresh lime juice
I thought this was good, and it certainly disappeared quickly from the potluck I attended. However, I would suggest a couple of changes. Firstly, I chopped the mint before adding it to the sugar/lime mixture to pull out more of the flavor, then I strained the pieces out (I liked the taste it imparted, but fresh mint leaves are fairly bitter. Chewing on them in your salad can be unpleasant).
Secondly, I'd definitely add another teaspoon of sugar if you're making it for a mixed group (in other words, people who may not like mojitos). In my opinion, that takes it from the realm of "this made the fruit taste like a mojito" to "this tastes like a yummy fruit salad." I'd strongly suggest tasting the dressing before adding it and adjusting the amounts to your preference, how sour your limes were, and so on.
I love mojitos and this salad looked lovely but it just wasn't my fave.
Fruit is obviously refreshing and delicious on its own but adding this lime and mint dressing made it especially so. Clever title for a very creative, colorful and interestingly delicious fruit salad. Aside from adding a little more sugar for our tastes I made no changes. We loved it.
I love this salad! The dressing is the perfect compliment to all of the flavors. It's helpful when the season of fresh fruit is over to make the salad last longer. I didn't change anything except switch out cantaloupe with honeydew. I don't like cantaloupe. Next time I might include mango and raspberries as well to add even more flavors! Thanks!
So refreshing! It's peak berry season here in Oregon, so I used triple crown blackberries, raspberries, fresh peaches (peeled), kiwi and watermelon. I used the tips given by others, I chopped the mint (a lot more than 3 sprigs!) and muddled it with 1 tablespoon sugar, then squeezed the juice of 2 limes over. I let it stand while I prepared the fruit, then strained it over the fruit, pressing hard on the solids. It was refrigerated all day while I went to the movies with my book club friends, then served at the after-movie discussion. Everyone raved about how good it was, and it was gone before the end of the evening. I think this would good with just about any fruit, so it would be something that could be served any time of year. A definite keep...thank you so much!!
I very much enjoy this salad and have served it at several gatherings. I also added an additional teaspoon of sugar and think any five to six kinds of seasonal summer fruit work really well. I used smaller chunks of leftovers plus the ample amount of juice released by the salad over time to make tasty popsicles as well.
Stunning salad. I knew my family loved it when we were fighting over the leftovers. Absolutely wonderful. Simple and just luscious. I wouldn't change a thing.
A family member recently asked me to bring a fruit salad to a potluck. My first thought was "ugh, how boring". So I started looking around for something a bit more inspired. When I found this, I knew I'd hit the jackpot.
And was I right. Everyone raved that this was the best fruit salad they'd ever had and wanted the recipe. It might even have even changed my mind on fruit salad. Thanks. :-)
