Seasonal Delight: Fruit Salad Recipe with a Honey-Mint Lime Dressing

fruitsalad2 Seasonal Delight: Fruit Salad Recipe with a Honey Mint Lime Dressing

I love a good fruit salad, who doesn’t?  You know, the type of salad that is filled with this season’s best fruits, picked at their peak, and speaks for itself in every bite.  Ah yes, we are in the peak of blueberry and peach season and I’m loving it.  I will tell you right now this fruit salad is a winner.  Tossed in a light sauce of freshly squeezed lime juice, honey, mint, and a touch of brown sugar.  Just enough to bring out the natural sugars in the fruit without being overwhelming it yet allowing the mint to compliment each fruit element.  The key is to use fresh ripe fruit. Under ripe or overly ripe will kill it. And if you must, canned fruit such as mandarin orange wedges or even peaches can be used, but fresh is truly best.

This salad would be perfect for breakfast, brunch, potluck, or bridal/baby shower.  My family and friends love this fruit salad and it is one of the first dishes to disappear at our family gatherings. I hope you will too. Enjoy!

    The photograph of the fruit leaves me wanting it now. It is so cool and refreshing and we had lasagne for dinner. The fruit with that lovely dressing would be perfect, right now.

    i tried this the other day and look forward to preparing it again today for lunch. instead of using brown sugar i use stevia for a lower-glycemic, equally delicious salad.

    I made this for a party yesterday and just like you mentioned, it was one of the first items to be eaten up. I made two batches and everyone loved it. I’m so glad I came across this recipe. I went to the store and purchased ingredients by memory and came home with lemon. I almost used lemon instead of lime, but I wanted to do this right. So back to the store again!I’m glad I did because the lime really adds just the right tartness and flavor and the mint is essential and not overpowering. It is so refreshing and the dressing gives the fruit a nice glossy finish to the fruit which makes it pretty. It did not make the fruit to watery while it was sitting in the buffet table for hours. This is the perfect fruit salad for a party. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

    I love this recipe! I made it for a group and figured I would have enough left for my lunch the next day. I was wrong! There was not a piece of fruit left in the bowl when they were finished with it. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
