SRC - Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime and Mint Syrup

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal.  This month I was assigned the blog  A Spoonful of Thyme.  I have been really neglecting my blog lately, which leads to the conclusion that I haven't been cooking much and that is unfortunately true.  I am just so tired at the end of a 12 or 14 hour daycare day that we have been eating a lot of simple meals, however this Fruit Salad recipe immediately jumped out at me because the daycare kids love fruit, we go through so many berries these days it is crazy! and it looked so cool and refreshing which is perfect for the hot weather here in Texas and it was something that I could easily make and I knew that we could all enjoy it.

The salad is easily customisable, I am not a big melon fan so although the original recipe had 3 kinds of melon in it I left out the honeydew, I had planned to add either raspberries or blackberries but I forgot to pick some up, so next time I make this fruit salad I will try it with those.


Syrup:
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

Fruit Salad:
1 lb strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1 cup red grapes
2 cups watermelon, cubed
2 cups cantaloupe, cubed
1 cup fresh pineapple, sliced
4 kiwis, peeled and diced

To make the syrup, mix the honey lime and mint together in a small bowl.

Add all the fruit to a large bowl and pour over the syrup and toss to combine everything together.  Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Happy that you and the kiddos enjoyed the salad. Fresh fruit is always a great addition to the menu when warm/hot weather hits!
