I’ll be the first to admit that I am horrible when it comes to holidays. I’m just not really a holiday kind of gal.
Honestly, there is not a single holiday that is celebrated in the states that gets me excited. Everything we celebrate seems to be some massive big spectacle, thats just not my thing.
I know I can’t be alone in feeling this way.
So if you are with me, this Lemon Mint Fruit Salad is exactly what we need in our lives. A little bite of simple and delicious put together.
If you are an avid holiday and specifically love decorating everything in Red, White and Blue, well, this fruit salad is also for you.
See how we can all still get along. 🙂
By this time in the year I have mint coming through my ears. It’s actually growing on the outside wall of my studio and while I sit here and work get wafts of mint coming through the window.
Divine. Total summer perfection.
It’s like the little plants of mint are begging me to use them.
I don’t have anyyyy problems with that.
Sans the mint these Strawberry Cucumber Salad is also the bombbbb.
You know me by now, I want simple ingredients.
Whats in our Lemon Mint Dressing for our Red, White and Blue Fruit Salad?
Thats it folks. The strawberries, blueberries and apples are bursting with fresh sweet flavor already we don’t need a whole lot to make this salad pop.
If you are looking at keeping it even more low-sugar (and vegan) feel free to omit the honey entirely.
For another fresh and summer salad try out our Strawberry Asparagus Spinach Salad.
Such a simple fruit salad that the possibilities are endless to make this a crowd pleaser. Today though we are bringing Lemon and Mint to the mix to lively up our Red, White and Blue holiday.
