This breakfast fruit salad is the perfect side dish for a holiday breakfast spread. It’s so fresh and light, with a mix of fresh berries and bananas tossed in a citrus-mint dressing.


  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup quartered strawberries (see note)
  • 6 ounces blackberries
  • 1 large banana, peeled and sliced


  1. Whisk the honey, lime juice, lemon juice, and mint in a small bowl.
  2. Place all of the fruit in a mixing bowl. Pour the dressing over the top and toss to coat the fruit. Garnish with more fresh mint for serving.


If you want to make the salad ahead of time I recommend no more than a few hours ahead. The lemon and lime juice will break down the fruit as it sits, so I like to serve it not long after I make it. It still tastes great after it’s been sitting for a while, but it will definitely have more liquid, and the fruit might not look as pretty.

If you do make it ahead, wait to add the bananas. They have a tendency to brown, so I recommend adding them just before you serve the salad.

If you are serving several dishes, this salad can easily stretch to serve six. You can also double it if you’re serving a crowd.
