Lush and Luscious Fruit Salad Recipe

This light and lovely fruit salad makes a perfect end to a summer meal–or it could work as a lively wake-me-up breakfast. Bursting with all the lush colors, flavors, and textures of the summer orchard and garden, this is one recipe to play with and vary again and again, depending on what is fresh and available in your area.

2 cups of any of the following, cut into bite-size chunks: peaches, nectarines, plums, pears

2 cups of any of the following: cherries (pitted), blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, currants, strawberries, loganberries, gooseberries

Juice of 1/2 lime
Sugar, succanat, or maple syrup to taste, depending on tartness of fruit
Fresh mint sprigs for garnish
