Serve this potassium-packed fruit salad (662 milligrams per serving) with breakfast or as a light dessert. Use a mini chopper to combine the dressing ingredients--it's the ideal size to blend the small amount of dressing for the salad.
6 kiwifruit, peeled and cut into 8 wedges 2 cups (1 1/2-inch) cubes honeydew 2 cups (1 1/2-inch) cubes cantaloupe 1 medium papaya, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks 1 tablespoon sugar 1 1/2 tablespoons mint 1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh orange peel 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
Combine kiwifruit, honeydew, cantaloupe, and papaya in a medium bowl. Place sugar and remaining ingredients in a mini chopper food processor; pulse until mint is finely chopped. Pour sugar mixture over fruit, and stir gently to coat.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups)
