A simple, 15-minute fruit salad with mango, blueberry, strawberry, and kiwi, dressed with lime juice and chili powder! Spicy-sweet, healthy, and so delicious. Perfect for summer BBQs and heat-free meals!Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 2 ripe mangos, peeled and cubed
  • 4 kiwi, peeled and sliced or quartered
  • 1 cup (166 g) sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup (148 g) blueberries
  • 1 small lime, juiced (~2 Tbsp, 30 ml)
  • optional: 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • pinch sea salt
  • optional: 1 ounce ( ml) silver tequila or white rum
Instructions
  1. Add all fruit to a large mixing/serving bowl.
  2. Add lime juice and maple syrup (optional depending on ripeness of fruit) to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Then pour over fruit and gently toss to coat.
  3. Add sea salt, then sprinkle on chili powder a little at a time, gently folding/stirring the salad as you go. I found 1/4 tsp to be the perfect amount, but add more or less depending on preference.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more chili powder, maple syrup, or lime juice as needed. Add tequila or white rum for a boozy kick (optional).
  5. Serve immediately, or cover and chill for 2-3 days (sometimes longer depending on freshness of fruit). See notes for freezing tip.
