Pear, Apple, Peach Salad

This past summer I wanted something different for our annual family Father's Day BBQ. Something refreshing as a side dish, but not typical boring green salad. So, I came up with a yummy combination of the two....a fruit salad that is more of a side dish than a dessert.


2 Pears Sliced
2 Apples Sliced
2 Peaches Sliced
2 Stalks of Celery cut into small pieces
1 C. Diced Jicama
1/4 C. Fresh Mint leaves roughly chopped
Juice of 2 limes
1 T Olive Oil
1/4 C. Honey
Pinch of salt and pepper

Add the apples, pears, peaches, celery and Jicama to a large bowl. Mix lime juice, olive oil, honey, mint, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Pour dressing mixture over fruit and celery. Toss it all together to coat. Serve immediately or chill until ready.
