Watermelon Fruit Salad with Lime Mint Dressing

Tired of the usual fruit salad? Our summer Watermelon Fruit Salad with strawberries, raspberries, cherries and a lime mint dressing is a refreshing, flavorful spin on classic fruit salad. With fresh berries, juicy watermelon, and a tart dressing to tone down the sweetness, your guests will thank you at your next outdoor BBQ.

Not a fan of mint? This watermelon fruit salad is also fantastic with fresh basil!
Fresh lime and mint go a long way in taking this watermelon fruit salad to the next level. They really enhance the flavor of fresh watermelon and berries, making this the most flavorful fruit salad you’ll make all summer!
If you have a cherry pitter, use it! It will make prep much easier. If you don’t have a cherry pitter, you can use a chopstick to easily remove the pits. Remove the stem and hold the cherry firmly in your hand. Stick the chopstick through the middle of the cherry and the pit will pop out of the bottom.
We like making this salad in a big serving bowl or platter, and then serving it family style at the center of the table.
We recommend eating this watermelon fruit salad immediately after you make it. As this salad sits in the fridge, the fruits continue to release moisture, making the salad soggy and watery. It still tastes good, but the textures are best when served fresh.
To add a note of saltiness, feel free to add crumbled feta cheese (vegan or regular) to this salad.
We love the monochrome pink/red berries and watermelon in this salad, but you can absolutely switch it up by adding in different berries like blueberries or blackberries, or even mango, pineapple, kiwi, peaches, etc.
