Fruit Salad with Lime & Mint

If there are two flavors I can't get enough of in summer it's lime and mint. While they're pretty fantastic paired in cocktails they do wonders to elevate a simple fruit salad as well.

You can use any fruit here, but I like to include at least one berry and melon. If you like the taste of fresh herbs, basil actually works nicely instead of mint too.

Fruit Salad with Lime & Mint

2 cups organic strawberries, halved
3 cups diced cantaloupe or honeydew melon
1 organic pear, diced
juice of 1 small lime
1 tsp. lime zest
1 tbs. raw honey
3 tbs. finely chopped mint

Mix fruit in a bowl. In a separate small bowl whisk lime juice, zest, honey and mint. Drizzle over fruit and toss gently to coat.
