Mojito Fruit Salad

The holidays are over and life is starting to settle back to "normal."  I wanted to share a recipe that I made for Christmas Brunch but loved it so much that I attempted to make it again for a birthday pot luck that I went to.

This super duper easy fruit salad got rave reviews from everyone who ate it.  It is also a great recipe for all of those health conscious/ resolution makers. No guilt!

I like the fact that this recipe can be easily changed up with whatever fruit you enjoy or what is in season!  Even if you don't cook you can make this recipe.  No stove required

Adapted from http://www.momontimeout.com/2013/07/mojito-fruit-salad/

Ingredients

8 cups fresh fruit, chopped (nectarines, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, grapes, melon, plums, pluots, etc.) (My first had strawberry, blueberries, pineapple and grapes and my second attempt I used Strawberry, Raspberry, Grapes, Blueberries and Cherries)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup lime juice (I just did this but if you want a boozy brunch add the rum)
OR 1/4 cup lime juice and 1/4 cup rum
2 Tbls fresh mint, chiffonade



Alternate recipe- 
I tried to make a this fruit salad again but forgot to buy the mint. =( Kinda takes the Mojito out of the fruit salad.  So I improved and swapped the sugar for brown, took out the water, and added cinnamon and cherry extract.  This was also delicious.

8 cups fresh fruit, chopped (nectarines, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, grapes, melon, plums, pluots, etc.)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cherry extract

Instructions 
1.Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat.
2.Heat until sugar is fully dissolved. Let cool.
3.Stir in lime juice and/or rum.
4.Drizzle about of the lime mixture over chopped fruit and gently stir until combined.
5.Continue adding lime mixture just until fruit is lightly coated. You don't want a puddle at the bottom of the bowl.
6.Sprinkle with fresh mint and stir gently just prior to serving.
7.Enjoy!
