This versatile, naturally sweet salad makes the most of Summer's beloved fruits. The addition of refreshing mint lends a cooling, clean finish to the salad. I tossed together blackberries, green grapes, and peaches — but use whatever fruits you have on hand for a delightful end to any meal. See the 10-minute recipe when you

made this tonight for a picnic. Delish! forgot the grapes, but added cherries as suggested. The mint really makes it taste fresh and probably makes people think you spent a lot of time making it.

This looks delicious, and it's a great way to use up extra mint. I have some in my fridge right now in fact!

I just had a fruit salad at this French/Moroccan restaurant in Soho and they put fresh mint leaves on it. I've been eating fruit salads for years and years but the mint added a whole new dimension. It was delicious!!
