  • Large bowl

Ingredients
  

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups Fresh strawberries thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Fresh Cherries pitted and halved
  • 1 cup Blackberries
  • ½ cup Raspberries
  • ¼ cup Pomegranate seeds if you want
  • cup Roughly chopped Walnuts raw or toasted

For the Dressing:

  • 3 Large Limes juiced (about 6 tbsp)
  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • ½ tsp Rosewater or orange blossom water if you have it

Instructions
 

  • Heat up the lime juice and honey in a small pot until the honey melts. If you’re using it, add the rosewater. Let it cool down.
  • Toss together all the fruits in a big bowl. Pour the dressing over them and give it a gentle mix.
  • Add the walnuts and mint, and toss everything together lightly. Then, put it on a plate or in bowls, and you’re ready to enjoy it!

Notes

  • You can prepare the fruit (except bananas) and the dressing a day ahead. Keep them separate in the fridge. Mix them just before serving.
  • Take out the bananas and store the salad in a sealed container. It’ll stay good in the fridge for 3-5 days.
  • Choose ripe and sweet fruit, especially pineapples and oranges. If they’re not sweet enough, add a bit more honey to the dressing to make it just right.
