Fruit Salad with Fruit Smoothie Dressing

Only Fruit: Fruit Salad with Pureed Fruit Dressing 

For the Salad
1/2 honey dew, peeled and diced
1/2 cantaloupe, peeled and diced
1/2 mini watermelon (reserve 1/4 of the melon for the dressing)
2 medium mangoes, peeled and diced
2 cups diced pineapple (i used frozen... thawed)
1 lemon

*My favorite knife for peeling round things (like fruits) is this curved pairing knife. The large knife is excellent for cutting through the thick rinds of melons as well as dicing, and the sturdy spoon is for scooping out seeds.

Combine all the salad ingredients together, except lemon, in a large bowl.

For the Dressing
1 cup fresh blackberries
1/4 watermelon
4 large strawberries (I used frozen)
2 clementines
3/4 cup water
4 small mint leaves 

Combine all the the dressing ingredients in a Viatmix or blender. 

Blend the ingredients together for 60 seconds, until smooth. (This is delicious as a raw fruit smoothie too!)

Pour the dressing over the salad and mix until all the fruit is covered.

Dish up and top with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and more chopped mint, if desired.
