Tried this recipe last night for a light summer dessert for a dinner party and it was a big hit. Summer in Delaware gives us a bounty of fresh fruit so a tray full of peaches and nectarines were put to good use. Instead of pulling off individual leaves of mint I just cut up several stalks and put those in the syrup and also warmed the syrup in the microwave on half power for about a minute to melt the sugar. Served the peaches on small squares of home made pound cake with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and mint leaves. Delicious! Will do this again. Thanks for the recipe.

I have done this exact recipe several times and it is delicious with lots of different types of fruit. I have also used canned pineapple in juice, and mixed in the juice with the lime juice, honey, and mint – very good.

Oh my. This is fancy without being fancy , ya know? LOL So light and refreshing. I used the fruit I had on hand: pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries and red grapes. I know this will become a staple at our house. Tanaks so much for sharimg.

This recipe really seems great with any fruit. I used nectarines, blueberries, raspberries, grapes and threw in a few handful of raisins. Very fresh and simple-tasting…a perfect salad for very little effort with great results!

This was a huge hit!! Even the kids that were a little wary of mint and fruit together kept sneaking pieces of fruit from the bowl. It was the only side dish that didn’t have leftovers at the end of the day! I used lemon juice because I didn’t have any limes, but I’m sure the lime would have been great, too.

I made this fruit salad for the Fourth of July and I loved it! The combination of lime, mint and honey is excellent with fruit.

Perhaps my mint was especially potent–all the other flavors were subsumed. Not inedible or bad, but too much mint for us.

Loved this! I made this dessert for a dinner party with friends who are vegan and gluten-intolerant and it was perfect. Fresh, easy, amazing.
