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. Read More

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.... Read More

Loved this fruit treat and will make it again & again probably differently each time. Went shopping and selected fruit that looked the freshest ripest & best. That turned out to be: 2 Georgia peaches 2 nectarines 1 red pear about a cup each of blueberries raspberries blackberries strawberries (quartered) seedless white grapes (halved) and small seedless red grapes. The fruit mixture can vary it's the dressing that makes it magic. Lemon juice quantity wasn't clear to me so I juiced and zested 2 large lemons 2 small limes and 2 oranges. The juice added up to a cup and I added a half cup of honey to get the sweet-tart balance I wanted. 2 Tbsp of very finely minced fresh mint leaves seemed like enough. I hope to find chocolate mint leaves one of these days. I used only half of the dressing for that amount of fruit. This was delicious!! Read More

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. Read More

You select your favorite fruits. the flavor is really brought together by the syrup. I used watermelon pineapple strawberries and blackberries. I mixed residual watermelon juice with the syrup and it gave a wonderful flavor. Super refreshing. It was a hit at the dinner party. Read More

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. Read More
