Fruit Salad with Honey, Lemon & Mint Dressing

Very simple salad that can be served as a dessert too. I make this salad often, particularly when i have loads of fruits in my fridge, that happens after every pooja or party at home. Normally, i use dates and avoid the honey. And also add almonds instead of walnuts. 
While browsing through some dressing recipes for this salad, i came across this lemon, mint and honey dressing. I cannot specify a particular post, there were many recipes from which i took inspiration. It surely, adds a nice zing to the fruits, and the pepper gives a nice burst of spice here and there while tasting the salad. 
The advantage of this salad is, you can use the most soggiest and almost dying fruit into this. The orange and the plum i used in this were revived for this salad:) This salad, can be used in sandwiches or served with a big scoop of your favorite ice-cream for a relaxed weekend dessert. 

Ingredients
1 apple
1 orange
1 banana
1 juicy red plum
handful of red grapes
4-5 walnuts
Dressing
1 tbsp honey
4-5 mint leaves chopped fine or 2 pinches of dried mint (i used dried mint)
a pinch of pepper
1/4 tsp salt
juice of half a lemon

Method
  • Wash all the fruits, Chop apple, plum and banana into thin slices. 
  • Peel the orange, remove the white pith, carefully separate the seeds and outer membrane, use only the segments in the salad.
  • Slice the banana's into roundels. Toss together all the fruit and add the grapes too, In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients of the dressing. Keep the fruit mix chilled.
  • Before serving, pour the dressing on top, add the walnuts and serve. Do not add the dressing and chill the fruit, the liquid will settle down in the bottom and it be clumpsy and spoil the whole eating experience. 
  • At the same, the walnuts should also be added just before serving, or else they will loose their crunch. 
  • Serve it right and enjoy your Dessert.
