Ingredients

  • 2 clementines, peeled and each slice cut into 3 pieces
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, diced
  • 1/4 cup grapes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup papaya, diced
  • 1/2 cup pineapple, diced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 20 mint leaves, chopped

Preparation

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Chill before serving.

Ingredient Variations and Substitutions

This recipe has no rules—you can swap in any and all fruit in equal amounts. Use your favorite or use up leftover fruit from your fridge. Each fruit offers its own profile of unique antioxidants and flavors. You won't be selling yourself short on nutrition if you swap any out.

Cooking and Serving Tips

This fruit salad is best served cold and fresh.

If you won't be serving the entire batch, consider making less to omit leftovers.

It's up to you whether you want to leave on the thin clementine skin before mixing with other fruit. Peeling the individual segments is time consuming, so don't worry about leaving the individual skins on.
