Equipment for this fresh peppermint fruit salad:

  • Mixing bowls I like to use a medium sized mixing bowl for the fruit and a smaller mixing bowl for the peppermint syrup. Stainless steel mixing bowls are my go-to mixing bowls because of how easy they are to clean and how durable mine are as well!
  • Pairing knife You can use a pairing knife or chef’s knife to chunk and slice the fruit with. A chef’s knife is also a good option if you prefer a larger and sharper knife for chopping up the assorted fruits for this peppermint fruit salad.
  • Cutting board I prefer plastic cutting boards that are also dish washer friendly for slicing meats, fruits and vegetables on. A cutting board is also nice for containing the mess and for keeping your countertop from getting scratched while you chop up the fruit.

You can serve this fruit salad plain in a pretty dish, or you can enjoy it with yoghurt and homemade granola in a fruit parfait for breakfast or brunch!

I love to have parfait options for traveling. Simply pack a container of yoghurt, fruit and granola and then tape a spoon on top of the container. You may wish to place the granola in a separate bag to keep it from getting soggy if you are going to be prepping the fruit parfaits the night before your trip or busy morning when you will be needing something quick to grab before you head out the door.

This fruit and granola parfait is a great option for serving in small individual cups at parties or for brunch with friends. This is also a nice breakfast option for those hot summer mornings when you prefer not to cook!
