Melon and Strawberry Fruit Salad

photo (47)The mint makes this salad taste really fresh, the juice is really nice with the lime.  I really like strawberries but I’m not as keen on melon, so thankfully the juice disguises the taste. The melon is rich in betacarotene and the strawberries and lime are rich in vitamin C. This recipe is wheat free, gluten free and dairy free and is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those following a detox. This recipe is from Carol Vorderman’s “Detox Recipes”.

Makes 4 servings

  • 1 cantaloupe melon
  • 225g strawberries
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 150ml apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Remove the seeds from the melon and cut the flesh into bite sized pieces. Wash, hull and halve the strawberries. Combine the prepared fruit with the lime zest and juice and apple juice in a large bowl. Serve with the chopped fresh mint.
