Mason Jar Fruit Salad is made with the freshest flavors piled high in a mason jar and topped with strawberry mint dressing. Kids and adults will love this quick, easy and healthy treat!
Even as a child, I always chose fruit salad for dessert over anything else. Mason jar salads are fun, convenient and easy. They are a great option when you are on the go and make the perfect snack for road trips if you have a little cooler to keep them cool. For this Mason Jar Fruit Salad with Strawberry Mint Dressing, I combined a few of my favorite fruit flavors to create a refreshing summertime treat. Watermelon, pineapple, strawberries, mango and blueberries are piled on top of a layer of the homemade strawberry mint dressing.
The idea for the dressing came together using a few ingredients that I always have in my kitchen. Puree fresh strawberries in a food processor with lemon juice, fresh mint and honey. The result is a sweet refreshing dressing that complements the fruit salad. Pour a small amount of the dressing into the bottom of each mason jar then layer with fresh fruit. To serve, pour all of the contents of the jar into a bowl, mix briefly to combine and enjoy!
I make these mason jar salads in advance and then enjoy them throughout the week for lunch, snack or dessert. They are also a great option to serve at summer picnics, dinner parties or celebrations. While I love the combination of flavors in this recipe the best, feel free to use your favorite fruit. Cantaloupe and raspberries also work well. Kids and adults will love them!
