My Mint-Lime Spring Green Fruit Salad is perfect for a sunny spring afternoon snack or weekend brunch side dish. This isn’t your typical fruit salad though. Fruit, nuts and diced avocado fill this perky green bowl.
The flavors: sweet-tart green apples, creamy avocado cubes, fresh mint, lime juice, crunchy salty pistachio nuts and zesty kiwis. I was a bit hesitant to add avocado to a fruit salad, but it worked! The proof: my empty bowl. I couldn’t stop eating this salad! The zesty kiwi and apple flavors pair perfectly with the savory pistachios and creamy avocado. Get the recipe..
Healthy Bowl! This salad contains plenty of fiber. Healthy oils from the avocados. A nice dose of Vitamin C from the kiwis and lime. And protein, copper and B vitamins from the pistachios.
Impress your brunch crowd. This is a fun conversation-piece recipe. The all-green, bright colors are perfect for a “spring green” themed party.
Table Accent: Pink tulips would be a perfect touch. Pink and green for spring! Pretty, healthy, delicious.
And yes, it’s not spring yet. But it’s coming! I’m so excited about sun, birds, flowers, spring sips and spritzers, smoothies and soft breezes.
