Pineapple & Melon Fruit Salad with Citrus Mint Dressing
A super refreshing fruit salad made with watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, orange segments, grapefruit segments, chopped mint, and a hint of honey. The perfect addition to any summer party, picnic, or BBQ!
Servings: 16 cups
- 3 cups watermelon diced in 1 inch cubes
- 2 cups cantaloupe diced in 1 inch cubes
- 2 cups honeydew diced in 1 inch cubes
- 1 whole pineapple diced in 1 inch cubes
- 2 large oranges
- 1 large pink grapefruit
- 1/2 ounce fresh mint leaves
- 1/4 cup honey
Place cubes of watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and pineapple into a large bowl (about 4 quarts). Toss together. Set aside.
Grab one orange and slice off the skin so that the segments are exposed. Using a paring knife, carefully slice out the segments from the membrane and place on top of the melon mixture. When all segments are removed, squeeze the membrane over the salad to remove the extra juice. Repeat with second orange and with the grapefruit.
Chop or chiffonade the mint and sprinkle over the salad. Drizzle the honey over the salad. Gently toss together to combine but be careful not to break apart the citrus segments since they're so delicate.
Cover and let it chill for a couple hours to let the flavors come together. Depending on how ripe the melon is, it can last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
