Mojito Fruit Salad is a fresh fruit salad tossed with a minty sugar/lime mixture with a little rum for a kick. 🙂
I used watermelon, cantaloupe, honey dew, red grapes, and blueberries, but you can use any fruit that you want to.
You could even leave the rum out and make a nonalcholic fruit salad.
With this Mojito Fruit Salad, you can inconspicuously eat your cocktails. 😉
We took a ziptop bag full of this salad along with some sandwiches to the community pool one evening. It was nice to be able to enjoy the flavor of a cocktail and no one was the wiser that we were boozing it up. 🙂
They do call it a fruit cocktail after all.
Served super cold straight from the refrigerator, this fruit salad is as refreshing as it gets. Chilled fruit, lots of fresh mint, and some rum. There’s maybe no better way to cool off during the summer.

This is the prettiest fruit salad! I can’t get enough of summer fruit and I love the mojito spin on this! It’s perfect for all the summer gatherings or just laying by the pool!
YUM!! I love fruit salad and this one looks amazing!! I love the mojito flavor! When we lived in Florida my husband and I used to take vodka soaked strawberries with us to the beach, but this looks like a much tastier option!!
Oh this looks just fantastic!! I have been absolutely loving pretty much all fruit this summer and with the mojito spin!? Sounds perfect!
