Jan’s Mojito Fruit Salad

Jan had an idea Thanksgiving Day morning of a mojito dressing for the fruit salad she was making. Unfortunately we were out of regular mint and we only had the spearmint that grows as a weed in our yard. We did however have mint and rum extracts in the cupboard. This is what she came up with:

Ingredients

Dressing

2 Lime, juiced
1 Tbs. honey, warmed
4 drops Rum extract
¼ tsp Mint extract

Selection of fruit (your choice)

Apples
Bananas
Grapes
Kiwis
Mango
Melon
Pineapple
Strawberries

Directions

1. Mix the dressing ingredients and let meld for a few minutes while you chop the fruit, everything except the bananas.

2. Put the fruit in a large bowl and toss with the dressing.

3. Chill for an hour, tossing occasionally.

4. Add the bananas, toss once more and serve.
