Berry Salad with Honey, Lime, and Mint

Berry Salad with Honey, Lime, and Mint – Juicy, ripe berries tossed with a simple lime-honey-mint sauce. 

Berry Salad with Honey Lime and Mint // One Lovely Life I feel like all I’ve craved so far this summer is fruit, fruit, fruit. We had such spectacular luck finding good peaches, then the berries were incredible, and a good watermelon is just around the corner. We’ve been eating our favorite Honey Lime Fruit Salad over and over (sometimes 3-4 times a week). I can’t get enough. My aunt Amy mentioned she’d recently tried a version that added mint. Aaaaand then I couldn’t get that idea out of my head.

Typically, I’m not a mint person. I don’t want it with my meat, I don’t really like it in much other than my toothpaste or essential oils. But I tried some spring rolls lately that changed my mind (the subtle basil + mint combo was divine!), so I thought it was worth a try. Totally. Worth. A. Try. Start small if you’re not much for mint. A little does go a long way and just lends a little subtle something extra. Love it? Add more! The simple honey-lime sauce can stretch to cover a lot of fruit, so feel free to add as much as you need if you’re serving a crowd. Also, feel free to use your favorite combination of berries here. We just had such good access to good ones that we picked up a container of each!

The actual amounts don’t matter much–the measurements I gave were to be used as more of a starting point than a hard-and-fast rule. I’ll also add that if you happen to have any leftovers, just refrigerate them overnight. They’ll macerate in all that delicious sauce. Try spooning them over some yogurt or oats the next morning, or blend them into a smoothie. Yum!

  1. I love, love, love the ‘plain’ version of the honey-lime dressing. You make a good case for expanding my view to include the mint!
