Here’s a fat-free, low-calorie dessert that’s as easy as it is healthy. Bursting with color, this fruit salad is packed with antioxidants and fiber. Fresh mint and lime zest give this salad a lively flavor boost.
8 strips lime peel (about 2-inches long)
4 mint sprigs plus 2 Tbsp minced fresh mint
1 tsp lime zest
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 qt fresh strawberries, halved
3/4 cup fresh raspberries
3/4 cup fresh blackberries
1 cup seedless red grapes
2 kiwifruits, peeled and thinly sliced
In a small saucepan over a medium high heat, combine 1 cup water, lime peel strips and mint sprigs. Bring to a boil and cook until half the liquid has evaporated.
Remove the lime strips and mint sprigs and let the mixture cool. Add the 2 tablespoons minced mint, the lime zest and the lime juice.
In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes and kiwi. Pour the lime and mint sauce over the fruit and toss gently until all the fruit is evenly coated.
