Orange Honey Rainbow Fruit Salad #fruit #salad #recipe @SlowRoasted

Nothing completes a spring/summer meal like a fabulous fruit salad.  I can remember growing up, every summer party had a big ole bowl of fruit salad on the table.

Picnics, park parties, barbeques, cookouts, and pot lucks: burger, dogs, salads and fruit really make the perfect menu.

Our fruit salads are always spectacular.  You have to start with a rainbow to fruit.  Start with all my favorite berries; strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry.

Then add kiwi, mandarin oranges, cantaloupe... You really can change it out to add your favorites.

The magic of this fruit salad is the dressing.  I combined the juice of several Mandarin oranges, good honey, lemon juice and a special ingredient: fresh mint (in a mason jar).

I sealed it up and then shook the living tar out of the jar, which helps bruise the mint and release all of its loveliness into the dressing.

Shortly before serving, drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.  OH.MY.GOSH!  The combination of flavors is utterly spectacular.

The sweet, tart, and coolness from the mint really drive this salad over the top.  This orange honey rainbow fruit salad is like a party for your senses.

It is the perfect fruit salad to take with you too.  Simply layer it in a bowl with the firmest fruit at the bottom and work your way up.  Carry your dressing separately.

When you are ready to serve, drizzle the dressing over top and toss to coat. Happy summer and enjoy!

  1. Simply beautiful! nothing says "summer" like a delicious fruit salad - lovely sweet dressing!

  2. Looks beautiful and probably is delicious too!

  3. I have made this several times with varying fruits. Instead of lemon juice in the dressing, I zest a lime. This is a great recipe!

  4. Looks super delicious. I am dying to taste it.

  5. how long will this keep in the fridge?

  6. I'm going to make this, how long will it last in the fridge covered without the banana?

  7. I am excited about this as it is a little different from my fruit bowl. I use all the fruit that I love and use a mixture of honey and line. However, I love the idea of the fresh mint with either method. Oranges sound great too.

  8. How long does it keep in frig

  9. Saved as a favorite, I love your blog!

  10. Is the mint okay to eat, or does the leaves have to be removed?

    1. Yes, Donald Rhoads, you use the mint leaves only, No worries, they are safe and very edible. Enjoy!

  11. I sure wish I knew how to find your videos, Donna. I've never been able to find any of them. I've tried clicking every where?
