tropical spiced fruit salad with mangoes + mint


Ingredients

Fruit

  • 2 mangoes
  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 pint of strawberries
  • 1/2 pint of raspberries
  • 1 star fruit

Glaze

  • 1/4 c. fresh orange juice
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • small pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 vanilla bean

Garnish

  • fresh mint

* Adjust the amounts according to your liking. If your fruit is a bit tart, you can add more honey to balance it out.


Instructions

  1. For the glaze, whisk the first 4 ingredients together until the honey is completely dissolved. Using a pairing knife, slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. With the back of the knife, scrape out the seeds and add to the bowl (with the pods). Whisk well.
  2. Peel, slice and chop all of the fruit.
  3. Add everything (except the raspberries) to a large bowl. Top with the glaze and toss gently to combine.
  4. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until nice and chilled.
  5. Right before serving, toss lightly. Garnish with raspberries and fresh mint leaves. *See note.

Notes

* It is best to add the raspberries right before serving so that they do not get crushed.
