Fresh Summer Fruit Tossed In Honey Mint Syrup Camp Recipe

When it is hot outside you probably want refreshing camping salads on your menu! This Fresh Summer Fruit Tossed In Honey Mint Syrup Camp Recipe is the perfect side dish or dessert! 

Nothing is quite as refreshing as a juicy bite of fresh fruit. Sure, you could dig in to a whole bowl of sweet and sassy strawberries but that is not nearly as satisfying as using a combination of seasonal fruit and amplifying the flavor with my honey mint syrup.

The blend of citrus is sweet, tangy and off-the-charts when it comes to freshness while the honey adds a touch of sweetness to the coolness of the fresh mint in this syrup.

Ahhhhhh…The flavors of summer!

Fresh Summer Fruit Tossed In Honey Mint Syrup Camp Recipe from CampingForFoodies features a colorful bowl of fruit topped with fresh mint.

Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

I like using tools rather than just squeezing the fruit because I get more juice from each piece of citrus.

Plus, it is easier.

This Dome Lid Citrus Juicer is nice because it is designed to fit lemons, limes and oranges and the dome lid doubles as a measuring cup with increments of tablespoons and cup measurements.

Camp Cooking Tip: I don’t like to let this salad stand in the syrup more than a few hours because the acid in the citrus will begin to breakdown the fruit.

In a camping bowl, gently toss the fruit in the syrup and let stand for a short time before serving.

You can prep everything ahead of time but wait until you are ready to eat for tossing.

Pairings

You’ll love this salad any time of the day! It is a great gluten free camping food option for dessert. Top it with a barely sweet fresh whipped cream and you’ll send yourself off to the land of sweet dreams and fairy tales. It makes a not-too-sweet ending as one of our favorite camping dessert recipes.

It works well at breakfast with a savory egg camp recipe like my Bacon and Cheese Quiche dish for a hearty meal or eat it with just a salty bagel for something a bit lighter.

For easy camping lunches it’s perfect as a main dish or as a side to a Panini sandwich.
