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.
Happy Ruby Tuesday, everyone! Click here to see more RT pictures.
