Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing
How's that for a gorgeous colorful fruit salad? If you want something fresh, nutritious and simple for a summer afternoon, well this is it. I have to say, this is one of my favorite fruit salads. It is simplicity at its finest! This salad is glazed with honey and lime juice that makes the flavor of the fruit really shine through.
You can really use any combination of fruit you want to. Blueberries or fresh sliced peaches instead of cantaloupe would be really good. Use whatever is in season for the freshest taste and most nutrition. I had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning with some vanilla yogurt and granola. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. YUM!
Now that I shared all the salad recipes, I'll give you a little teaser of what's to come. Think Strawberry Honey Butter, canned Spiced Strawberry Butter and Strawberry Syrup. There will also be some desserts in there as well. I think Strawberry Palooza may end up stretching longer than a week! I hope you enjoy it!!
Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
Makes enough for a crowd
1 pt. container strawberries
1 medium cantaloupe, cubed
1 bunch (about 1 1/2 lbs.) seedless green grapes
1/4 cup honey
juice from 2 limes (about 2-3 tablespoons)
Rinse strawberries and grapes. Gently pat dry the fruit. Hull strawberries, then cut each in half; if large, cut into quarters.
Cut the cantaloupe into small chunks and remove grapes from stems. Gently combine all three in a large bowl or aluminum tray. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together honey and lime juice. Pour over fruit. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
