Fruit Salad

I love this fruit salad.  I think the lime and mint really bring out the flavor of the fruit, and make it extra  delicious!  You can of course use any fruit you have on hand.

Fruit Salad

8-10 cups cut fruit, such as watermelon, canteloupe, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mango, peaches, nectarines, etc.
1/4 cup sugar
1 lime
2 tsp fresh mint leaves, chopped

At least 30 minutes before you're going to be serving, zest the entire lime using a zester or a fine grater.  Stir the lime zest into the sugar until well mixed; set aside.  Just before serving, combine all fruit in a large bowl.  Add lime sugar and mint leaves and toss until evenly coated.  Serve immediately.
Serves 10 as a side dish.
