Heart Healthy Honey Basil Fruit Salad

Here at EatSmart, we’re continuing to celebrate Heart Health Month with another nutritious recipe! This week, we are featuring a Honey Basil Fruit Salad, which blends together 3 healthy fruits with a sweet, quick and easy dressing.

A key ingredient in the salad is strawberries, which are great for maintaining a healthy heart because they are naturally free of sodium, cholesterol, and fat! Strawberries can help control three risk factors of heart disease:  high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high homocysteine levels.

The salad is also loaded with raspberries. Raspberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber and vitamin C, and when combined with an overall a healthy diet, have the potential to lower your risk of heart disease.
