Late Summer Fruit Salad with Agave-Mint Dressing

Late Summer fruit platter

Late-summer fruits can be lush and ripe, but are often past their peak of flavor. I like my midsummer fruit salads plain, but by late summer, fruit salads can use the help of a sauce to enliven the flavors. This Late Summer Fruit Salad recipe adds an Agave-Mint Dressing to make the fruity flavors really pop!

Late Summer Fruit Salad with Agave-Mint Dressing

    (coconut or soy)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons agave nectar to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • Fresh summer fresh fruit as desired, cut into bite-sized pieces
    (choose from among melons, peaches, nectarines, grapes,
    cherries, berries, and whatever is available and local)
  • Small mint sprigs for garnish


  1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix until smoothly blended.
  2. Arrange fruits on a platter. Garnish with mint, and pass around the dressing to dollop on individual servings.
