Mojito Fruit Salad (Non-alcoholic)

Hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! It was gorgeous here in Lima... we took advantage of the beautiful weather and had several friends and family over for a big cook-out. We had some family come in from out of town, and on Saturday  morning, I whipped up a big bowl of Mojito Fruit Salad. The inspiration for this recipe came from a little date night last week with my husband. We celebrated our 4th anniversary with dinner at the Met (a local restaurant/wine bar in Lima). We are expecting our first child in November, so this was our last anniversary just the two of us! I toasted with a specialty drink - a non-alcoholic blueberry mojito. Man, it was so good! Blueberries, lime, mint... very refreshing for the summer season. I thought the flavors would work well in a summer fruit salad, so I did some searching online and got to work. This fruit salad combines your favorite summer fruits with chopped fresh mint, and a sweet lime glaze. So juicy and fresh!

Add in some diced fresh mint, and a simple glaze made of lime juice and powdered. That's it! It's got that extra zing that a typical summer fruit bowl doesn't have. Enjoy! IMG_7194 ---
