ahhhhhhh Summer…but wow did it get very hot all of a sudden. I’m loving the 50° nights while we have them because the house cools down (we don’t have AC) nicely. Tuesday’s predicted high is 95°. I will not be cooking. I’ll be making this Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing again. Again. Oh how I love this dressing.

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing.

Seasonal eating is important to us. We have fresh strawberries, cherries, blueberries and raspberries to go with bananas, kiwi, lime, orange and lemon from the store. Yogurt with local honey tops it off.

Avoid frozen fruit for this recipe. I think you’ll be disappointed by the softer texture after cell walls thaw and burst. The salad would be juicier than normal, and that will thin the dressing.

I suggest making the salad ahead of time, making the dressing ahead of time, and storing them separately in the fridge. Drizzle the Honey Lime Dressing over the Fresh Fruit Salad. Don’t over do. The dressing is an accent to the fresh fruit, not a cover up. Enjoy!
