Recipe Blog Post



(* indicates my preferred ingredients – see notes for alternatives)


1 lb strawberries, hulled and chopped

2 cups chopped pineapple

1 ½ cups blueberries, washed

1 ½ cups orange segments

1 cup sweetened or unsweetened shredded coconut

½ cup mint leaves (more for garnish)

2 ½ tablespoons O&V Blueberry Vinegar  *

1 tablespoon O&V Blood Orange Oil *

2-3 tablespoons Runamok Maple Syrup (to taste)





Chop the pineapple and strawberries, wash the blueberries and segment the oranges. Toss all the fruit together in a bowl


Chiffonade (thinly slice) the mint leaves. Add the sliced mint to the fruit and gently toss.


In a separate small bowl whisk together the honey/maple syrup, oil, and vinegar until it comes together, Drizzle over fruit and lightly toss again. Garnish with the remaining mint leaves and serve immediately.


Optionally reduce 2 additional tablespoons of Blueberry vinegar and drizzle over the salad as you serve it




Serves 6-8

Active time 25 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes




* The Blood Orange Oil adds an amazing citrusy flavor and the Blueberry vinegar has a wonderful balance of sweet and tart with a fabulous taste of fresh picked blueberries. You can use another fruity vinegar but, as always, the quality of the oil and vinegar you use will greatly impact the finished dish.
