Minted Fruit Salad

My balcony herbs are out of control. I went out there the other day and couldn’t work our what to do with all of that mint. It is spilling out of the pot. I never have any success with gardening up until now when I think I’m having a little too much success with the mint. While at first I was tempted to make a few too many mojitos (I am still considering this option) I decided a fruit salad on a hot summer day was probably more appropriate. The minty flavour makes the fruit taste just that little bit more refreshing. And in 35 degree Sydney heat, you need refreshing.

My balcony mint


Two kiwi fruit, peeled and cut into chunks
Two bananas, peeled and cut into chunks
One green apple, cored and cut into chunks
One punnet of strawberries, halved
2/3 cup orange juice
Handful of chopped mint


1.    Mix together chopped mint and orange juice in medium bowl.
2.    Cut bananas and apple first immediately placing them in juice to avoid browning.
3.    Add other fruit chunks and stir.
4.    Can be stored in the fridge ready for a picnic!
