This simple fruit salad is the PERFECT side dish for summer barbecues & family dinners. Between the gorgeous berries, ripe cherries, and honey lime dressing, every bite tastes like summer!



For The Honey Lime Dressing:

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime zest (zest of 1 lime)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice (juice of 1 lime)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey or agave syrup

For The Cherry Fruit Salad:

  • 3 cups diced strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries
  • 1 1/2 cups halved sweet cherries (pits removed)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint, sliced or minced


  1. First, Mix Up The Dressing. To start, combine lime juice, honey or agave, and lime zest in a small bowl or jar. Whisk until well combined. (The dressing can be made a day in advance and refrigerated, if needed.)
  2. Combine Fruit. In a large bowl, combine strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and fresh mint.
  3. Dress The Salad. Drizzle the fruit salad dressing over the fruit. Gently stir to combine.
  4. Serve & Store. Enjoy within 2 hours for the best texture. Leftover fruit salad can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge 2-3 days. (The fruit will continue to soften over time.)


  • When Cherries Aren’t in Season… If you can’t find cherries or they’re not on sale, you can swap in some purple or red grapes. They’ll work texturally and will still add a lot of beautiful color to the salad. (It’ll be a bit like my other favorite fruit salad!)
  • Try It For Dessert! This gorgeous salad also makes a great dessert! Serve on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream, or spoon it over bowls of vanilla ice cream or pound cake. It’s delicious!
  • Ideas For Leftovers. I love this the next morning for breakfast, but you can also blend it with ice to make a delicious smoothie, or blend it and freeze in popsicle molds to make homemade popsicles!
