Fruit salad with honey lime dressing has a combination of all the fresh fruit in season for a perfect salad on a hot summer day. A honey lime dressing brightens up the flavors for an easy summer side dish. Cherries are a great addition, along with kiwi and strawberries.
I love to make complicated recipes that require measuring and several steps but sometimes quick and easy is just as good. After making this the first time, it seemed too easy to put on the blog but then I realized that if I hadn’t seen this post on someone else’s blog, I might not have tried it, so I am passing it along.
This will work with almost any mixture of fruit. I used what was ripe at the time, strawberries, blueberries, peaches and cherries and then added kiwi and pineapple. Natalie added bananas to hers but I save bananas for the winter when we can’t get anything fresh. You don’t need to measure, just add what looks good to you. I used about eight cups of fruit with the dressing but this is just a guideline. The lime zest can be very strong so make sure you don’t get the white part when you’re zesting or it will taste a little bitter. The lime and honey combination work perfectly with fresh fruit. You’re just adding a little but it goes a long way. It was so fresh and perfect after a hot summer day.
This is great to take to a cook out or summer get together. It’s so cool and refreshing.
