It was incredibly hot and humid in NJ yesterday - it had been that way for the entire week. Nothing is more cooling to me that a good fruit salad on those kinds of days and yesterday was no exception.
This fruit salad is made of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, papaya, cherries and watermelon. Normally, I add several kinds of mint, but since I don't have a garden at the moment (boohoo!), I skipped it. If you have the following herbs, they are good additions: peppermint, ginger mint, lemon verbena and pineapple sage, all minced and added to your taste.
Sweeten as desired - I only added a scant teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of salt. Then comes the good part - the St. Germaine elderflower liqueur, some fresh lemon juice and some lime zest. Add those three to your taste.
I wrote about St. Germaine here, in the event you don't know what it is.

Yum, that looks divine.
Are you loving this 70 degree weather this week or what!
That looks & sounds delicious!
I've been eating a lot of fresh fruit lately too. Your salad looks delicious! It would go well with my evil bottle of wine. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you make it back to the Bay Area one day!
Sounds delicious! I eat a fruit salad almost every morning for breakfast, minus the alcohol of course. I should keep in mind to add some herbs!
I would imagine it tastes as good as it looks and sounds. delicious. i notice that wild strawberries are now ready to be picked. they look luscious. Ann
