Berry Fruit Salad? Really, Jennifer, do we reeeeeeally need a recipe for that?
Yes. Yes you do, because this isn’t just any old fruit salad, this is a fruit salad full of my favorite berries, lemon, honey, and my secret ingredient: fresh mint.
I wanted a good, healthy, yet totally mind blowing delicious fruit salad for those dreaded times when you’re going to a potluck or grill out and are asked to bring the fruit.
Do you know what I’m saying? Nobody likes being tasked with bringing the fruit to the party, because it’s just so BORING and often ignored!
