If you've already got burger patties to transport, opt for an easy-to-pack fruit salad for dessert. 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 .

The mint really makes it taste fresh and probably makes people think you spent a lot of time making it. nancita 8 years This looks delicious, and it's a great way to use up extra mint.
