Mojito Fruit Salad
The refreshing flavors of a mojito combined with the robust flavors of fresh summer fruit salad!
- 8 cups fresh fruit chopped (nectarines, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, grapes, melon, plums, pluots, etc.)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup lime juice OR 1/4 cup lime juice and 1/4 cup rum
- 2 tbsp mint fresh - chiffonade
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat.
Heat until sugar is fully dissolved. Let cool.
Stir in lime juice and/or rum.
Drizzle about half of the lime mixture over chopped fruit and gently stir until combined.
Continue adding lime mixture just until fruit is lightly coated. You don't want a puddle at the bottom of the bowl.
Sprinkle with fresh mint and stir gently just prior to serving.
