Luscious Fruit Salad
Carly Simon's Potluck
Potluck parties bring folks together. That's why Tamara Weiss and Carly Simon cooked up a new book called Potluck at Midnight Farm: Celebrating Food, Family, and Friends on Martha's Vineyard. Check out the recipe for Luscious Fruit Salad they shared on Good Morning America.
Cut the honeydew melon and cantaloupe in half and scoop out the seeds. Slice these halves into wedges, cut off the rinds, then cut the melon into small chunks. Place these in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Toss in the watermelon. Next the grapes, oranges, and peaches. Place the banana rounds on top, but refrain from stirring or the salad will become mushy. Add the strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries to the top of the fruit salad.
Squeeze the juice from the lime halves all over the fruits. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, then gently toss just before serving. I use my hands for this as they bruise the fruits less than any utensils.
Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled and, if you like, top with raisins, dried cranberries, granola, yogurt, sliced almonds, or rose petals.
