Fruit Salad with Mint Sugar
My good friend, Melissa, made this delicious fruit salad for my family the last time we were invited over for dinner. The added sugar brings out the fruit's sweetness and the mint is so refreshing! Try this fruit salad at your next BBQ! And please check out my friend, Melissa's, blog, Harper Street Treats! She makes the most amazing cake pops, cookies and sweets!
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint
3 tablespoons sugar
1 carton of blueberries
1 carton of strawberries
1 1/2 c. seedless red grapes
(The amount of fruit and the types of fruits are just suggestions...if you want to use more, do so! If you want to try other types of fruits, go for it!)
Pulse mint and sugar in a food processor until finely ground. Sprinkle mint sugar over fruit in a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.
