Ruby Fruit Salad


As the lime juice and brown sugar sit together, they create a delicate syrup that's perfect for the fruit salad.


  • 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (from 1 lime)

  • 3 purple or red plums (about 12 ounces), halved, pitted, and cut into ½-inch pieces

  • 2 cups seedless red grapes

  • 1 pint blackberries

  • ½ pint blueberries

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, plus sprigs for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, stir together sugar and lime juice. Let stand 10 minutes for sugar to dissolve.

  2. Add plums, grapes, blackberries, blueberries, and mint; toss to combine. Refrigerate up to 1 day. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
