Foodie Friday: Calypso-Berry Salad

This is why I love summer.  Recipes this easy.  Food this fresh and the name...Calypso.  Who wouldn't love the name.  

I cannot remember the source of this recipe.  It was a superfood style book, but I can't remember which one.
Calypso-Berry Salad
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup chopped papaya
1 cup chopped mango
1 cup sliced banana
1 1/2 TBSP sloe gin
1 TBSP lime juice

Place all ingredients in bowl and toss.
Serves 6-8

Delicious! This recipe is fully getting me ready for summer. It's one of the only times I really enjoy a bit of alcohol and adding it to my food. If you like, I invite you to come and link up at my Vegetarian Foodie Fridays @ Breastfeeding Moms Unite! Would love to have you.
