A refreshing, sophisticated take on a fruit salad.



  • 1/2 of a medium-sized watermelon
  • 1 small-medium honeydew melon
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 3 small kiwi
  • Lime Mint Dressing (recipe below)
  • Fresh mint and basil chiffonade for garnish

Lime Mint Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tsp agave
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 4 tbsp mint chiffonade
  • 2 tbsp basil chiffonade


  1. Whisk all ingredients except mint and basil until well combined. Stir in mint and basil and let sit for a few minutes.
  2. To prepare salad, use a melon baller to carve out 1/2 of a watermelon and a honeydew melon. Don't discard scraps - either eat them on their own, or add them to a smoothie or juice!
  3. Slice strawberries and kiwi. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl, and drizzle about half of the dressing over top. Gently stir to coat fruit, and then transfer to a serving platter. Drizzle with more dressing, then garnish with fresh mint and basil (optional). Store in refrigerator until ready to serve/eat. Enjoy!
