Berry watermelon fruit salad topped with lime mint dressing. We love this easy summer fruit salad!



For The Mint Lime Dressing:

  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint, sliced thinly or minced
  • 1 Tablespoon honey or agave (use agave for vegan)
  • Zest of 1 lime (about 2 teaspoons)
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 2 Tablespoons)

For The Watermelon Fruit Salad:

  • 5 cups diced watermelon (cut into a 3/4-1″ dice)
  • 2 cups sliced or halved strawberries
  • 1 cup pitted, halved cherries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries (or more cherries or blueberries)
  • Extra fresh mint, for garnish


  1. First, Mix Up The Dressing. In a jar or small bowl, combine fresh mint, honey or agave, lime zest, and lime juice. Whisk to combine well & set aside. (You can mix this up in advance if you like and store in the fridge!)
  2. Assemble Your Salad. In a large bowl, combine watermelon, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and raspberries.
  3. Drizzle With Dressing. Pour the dressing over the fresh fruit and gently stir to combine. You want to coat the fruit evenly with the dressing without crushing the berries.
  4. Garnish With Fresh Mint. For a final flourish, add a few fresh mint leaves or a chiffonade (thin ribbons) of fresh mint.


*I recommend dressing this salad just a few minutes (5-15 minutes) before you plan to serve it for best results. You can make the dressing & prep the fruit, then just wait to add the dressing.
