One thing I can’t get enough of during this pregnancy is fresh fruit! We eat some kind of fruit as a side dish for nearly every meal, but when I’m feeling extra fancy I like to make this honey lime fruit salad with it. It’s quick and easy to make, and brings out all of those delicious flavors in the fruit. I have made it with pretty much every kind of fruit you can imagine: all kinds of fresh berries, watermelon and canteloupe, peaches and nectarines, bananas, grapes, clementines, apples – you name it! This salad is one of my favorite things to make when I have a random peach or two, a handful of grapes, and half a carton of strawberries all threatening to go bad. The simple honey lime dressing brings all of the flavors of the fruit together, and somehow it always just works!
Although you can just mix up the salad and eat it right away, I think it’s better when it has been refrigerated for twenty minutes or so to allow the flavors to blend. I usually put together the salad before I make the main course, pop it in the fridge, and by the time the rest of dinner is ready the fruit salad is ready to go. It’s simple and delicious, and everyone in my family loves it!
