When your fruit needs a dress

Everyone in my family loves fruit salad but I’ll admit it can get kind of boring.  One way to make it visually more interesting is to cut the fruit in different shapes and serve in pretty beverage glasses.  To liven up the flavor, try this twist on a fruit salad dressing I learned in culinary school.  A bonus:  The dressing keeps the fruit from turning brown.

Fruit Salad Dressing
-Equal parts orange, lemon and lime juice
-Lime zest
-Chopped mint
-Honey or Maple syrup to taste

Mix all together and adjust sweetness to your liking and to fit the kind of fruit you’re serving.  Toss with fruit and chill.
