Mojito Fruit Salad


  • 2 Granny Smith Apples
  • 5 Kiwis
  • 1 Honeydew Melon
  • 1/2lb Green Grapes
  • 2 Limes
  • 3 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Mint


Cut all of your fruit into bite sized pieces. Like I said I really like to use a melon baller for the honeydew. Also I suggest cutting up your apples last because the longer they sit with their flesh exposed the browner they will get. I've decided that cutting the grapes in half is a nice touch Once all of your fruit is ready to go mix the juice from both limes with the chopped mint. Pour lime/mint mixture all over your fruit and lightly toss to combine everything. And that's it.
