Berry Fruit Salad


I found this recipe in my Celebrate magazine last month and instantly fell in love.  It just looked so fresh and light and I thought it would be the perfect little summer side or even simple dessert.  And after I made it, I knew it would be a staple at our house all season long.

Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, watermelon with a little orange extract, honey and fresh mint…hello wonderful.

This recipe makes enough to feed a crowd and can be easily doubled if necessary.  I made mine 12 hours in advance and kept it in the fridge but you could serve it immediately too.

Shopping List
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon orange extract (or orange liqueur)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups cubed watermelon
2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
2 cups fresh raspberries
Fresh mint to garnish

In a small bowl, mix together the honey, orange extract and lemon juice.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine all of your fruit.  Pour your honey mixture down over all of the fruit and toss until combined.  Garnish with mint.

Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few hours.

So simple. So light.  So fresh.  So summer.
