Summer Fruit Salad

Fruit salad.jpgWho says healthy can’t be delicious and exotic?  I made the most of the last of the season’s tropical fruit by assembling a fresh fruit salad with a special tip from Jamie Oliver.  The secret is to add fresh mint.  I saw him do it on a show by bashing mint leaves up with sugar in a mortar and pestle, but I think that’s just a bit too much work first thing in the morning and way too much physical activity!

Ingredients: Any tropical fruit you have left in your fridge. I used:

  • 5 lychees, cut in half, peeled and seed removed
  • 1 peach, peeled and sliced
  • 1 plum, peeled and sliced (only because I don’t like the tart skin)
  • 2 slices rockmelon, diced approximately same size as the stonefruit
  • Some raspberries – fresh or frozen
  • 3 – 4 mint leaves


Mix fruit together gently; and stir through the torn mint leaves.  Enjoy with a fresh smoothie and make sure you reward yourself for being good too ;)
