Strawberry Nectarine Fruit Salad

The proportions are flexible, depending on the sweetness of your fruit and what you have on hand. We used about a 2:1 ratio of nectarine chunks to strawberries.

The amounts given are for four servings. You can easily scale up this recipe to feed a crowd!

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 large white nectarines (3/4 pound to a pound), cut into edible sized chunks, pit and stem removed
  • About 8 to 10 fresh strawberries, stems removed, quartered
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 leaves fresh mint, thinly sliced

Method

Gently toss the chopped nectarines and strawberries together in a medium bowl with the honey and lemon juice. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, so that the fruit has a chance to macerate.

Right before serving, gently toss with thinly sliced fresh mint.

Taste for tartness. If too tart for your taste, sprinkle a little sugar over it. If cloyingly sweet, sprinkle with a little more lemon juice. The level of sweetness or tartness will depend on the specific fruit you are using, so you will need to make adjustments depending on your fruit.
