Mixed Fruit & Lemon.

Mmmm. I learned from my mom to make my meals look as good as they taste. This little fruit salad hits both criteria. You can use any combination of fruit you like that gives a balance of texture, flavor, and of course, color. Here’s my version from tonight:
Mixed Fruit & Lemon.
  • watermelon, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • blueberries
  • nectarines, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 4 to 5 fresh mint leaves, chopped
Mix together and enjoy!
Oh? How much fruit to add? Well, it depends.  What do you like? What do you have? What’s your color balance (I’m not kidding about this!)?  Tonight, I used 1/2 of a large “personal” watermelon, a pint of blueberries, and 3 nectarines.  Tomorrow I may use more of the watermelon, a couple of boxes of raspberries, and a mango.  By the way, lime juice works just as well as lemon. And fresh mint just brings it all together.
