Looking for a simple, but occasion-worthy dessert? What about a mixed berry fruit salad, dressed with mint, honey and orange?
Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? But so easy! Give yourself a break in the dessert department for your next party or event and throw together my Mixed Berry Fruit Salad, and pair it with my 3 ingredient Creamy Orange Dessert Sauce. See the second photo below, or click here for the full recipe.
You can literally have a scrumptious, gorgeous dessert ready in 15 minutes!
How do you make a berry salad?
Mix together a selection of berries, depending on what’s in season. You can use any combination of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mulberries, or even pitted cherries (which I know is technically not a berry but I think they would be great!) – whatever is freshly available. I have used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries (quartered).
Combine the honey, orange juice and mint, then pour the mixture over your berries – this can be done up to 4 hours before serving – then refrigerate until needed.
If you are making my Creamy Orange Dessert Sauce to go with your berry fruit salad (which I highly recommend!), you can also make that ahead and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
Mixed Berry Fruit Salad with Mint
Mixed Berry Fruit Salad with Mint - combine fresh berries with a simple dressing of honey, orange and mint. Perfect quick & easy dinner party dessert!
- 250 g fresh raspberries
- 250 g fresh blueberries
- 500 g fresh strawberries quartered
- 1 tblsp orange juice I used fresh
- 1 tblsp runny honey
- 1/4 cup mint leaves - loosely packed finely shredded (see notes)
To make the dressing, mix together orange juice, honey and mint in a small bowl or jug and set aside.
Place berries in a large bowl, then pour over the dressing and stir to combine the berries.
Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
You could make this berry fruit salad up to 4 hours ahead, just keep it covered in the fridge until needed.
The easy way to finely slice your mint? Just lay the leaves on top of each other in a little pile, then roll that pile into a tight sausage shape then cut off thin "slices" of the sausage. Mint chiffonade - fancy!
You can also adjust the amount of honey to your taste.
This is perfect served with my Creamy Orange Dessert Sauce.
