More About This Recipe

  • Berries. Berries. Berries. BERRIES!

    I adore fresh berries. In the summertime, freshly picked blueberries and strawberries are so perfectly sweet – unlike anything you find in the grocery store.

    My kids and I go to pick-your-own farms, coming home with giant crates of berries we’ve picked ourselves. It’s magical. And sometime in around mid-summer, our driveway is surrounded by bushes of wild blackberries. There’s nothing better than a quick walk up the driveway for berries to eat with breakfast.

    Do you berry pick? Have berries growing around your house?

    When it comes to fruit salad, the old standby – peaches, pears, grapes and cherries – is always good. But it’s summertime. Don’t you deserve something better than good? Something awesome, amazing, mouthwatering even?

    My Minty Mid-Summer Fruit Salad is the perfect answer. It’s a mixture of four types of berries with a fresh mint simple syrup to tie it all together. Can a fruit salad be refreshing? Absolutely … and this one is.

    Now, when you go to serve this, use a few mint leaves for garnish. It’s pretty, and it also clues everyone in that this is no ordinary fruit salad.
