Basil Lime Fruit Salad

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 8 servings
Author Amy Rains

Ingredients

For the fruit salad:

  • 6 medium sized peaches
  • 6 kiwi
  • 2 large mangos
  • 1.5 lbs strawberries

For the syrup:

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped basil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated lime zest zest of 1 lime

Instructions

  1. To begin, prepare your fruit. Peel the skin of both the kiwi and mango. A potato peeler works well for this. Chop the fruit into small pieces, around 1/2 inch in diameter.
  2. Layer your fruit in the bowl, and then toss to combine altogether.
  3. Prepare the syrup: Chop the basil into small fine pieces, squeeze the juice of 1 lime, and grate the lime peel using a microplane zester. Add honey, and whisk together to combine.

  4. Pour syrup over fruit, and stir to coat. Serve immediately, or chill for up to 8 hours before serving. This salad tastes best served within the 8 hour window, but can still hold up for a few extra days in the fridge.
