So...I have a confession to make. I'm not really a fruit person. Like, if you offer me chocolate or a piece of fruit, I will always, always go for the chocolate. Because chocolate is love.
But lately, I've been trying to add more fruit to my diet. And this fruity juicy bowl has quickly become my favorite way to eat lots of fresh and delicious fruit all together. And it's so pretty too!
Speaking of fruit and chocolate, can I make another confession? I really do not like combining fruit and chocolate together. So like chocolate orange or strawberry chocolate desserts simply do not work for me. Please, let's keep the two apart, okay? Thank you. Lol. :p
How to Make It
I've seen a lot of recipes that call for an orange honey dressing, and while I'm sure that's equally delicious, I wanted to do something differently.
And so I added pineapple juice instead of orange juice, and let me tell you - the pineapple juice makes a huge difference to this recipe.
In the video above, it may seem like I've added too much pineapple juice for, but seriously it makes it so juicy you won't be able to stop eating it.
The honey adds a little sweetness, the lime adds a fresh kick of brightness and the chopped mint adds a subtle but fresh flavor to the pineapple salad.
Now, I've always found adding mint to desserts / sweet stuff, a bit weird. But it really works here. So if you like mint, don't skip it!
The measurements below in the recipe card are just approximate, and it really doesn't make a difference if you don't follow the recipe to a T. It will still turn out delicious.
I know how I'm going to be eating fruit all summer long, what about you?
