Mojito Fruit Salad

We are gearing up for the 4th, and we found a healthy, delicious and not-so-average fruit salad we know you’ll enjoy and feel great eating! This summer salad can even be made into an “adult” version if you’re headed out with just a group of friends! Check out the recipe below from A Farmgirl’s Dabbles and let us know if you try it this 4th! Happy Independence Day, friends!

INGREDIENTS

 

  • 8 c. cubed watermelon, about 1″ in size
  • 4 c. hulled and quartered strawberries
  • 3 c. blueberries
  • 18 large mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 c. fresh lime juice
  • 4 T. powdered sugar
  • 4 T. white rum, optional
  • Jicama stars, optional

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place fruit in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chopped mint, lime juice, and powdered sugar. With the back of a spoon, muddle the mint to release its flavor. Stir in rum, if desired.
  3. Drizzle mixture over fruit. Gently fold to combine. Then place in fridge to chill, and to let the fruit juices mingle. This can be made a few hours prior to serving. Just be sure to fold right before eating.

To include jicama stars, cut jicama into 1/4″ slices. Use a sharp star-shaped cutter to create stars, about 1-3/4″ in size. To preserve their whiteness, I wait to toss the stars into the salad until right before serving.
