Are you looking for a fun twist on the traditional fruit salad for your summer barbecue? You’ll love this Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad recipe!
One of my absolute favorite things about summer time is the fruit. There’s nothing better than fresh, local, organic, in season fruit on a hot summer day. It’s tasty and so refreshing!
I look forward to visiting the Farmer’s Market each week with my daughters and choosing the fruits we’ll enjoy that week. It’s a fun bonding experience that I hope they’ll always remember.
Now that it’s warm again, we’ve started making bowls of fruit salad that we can eat anytime we need a snack during the day. It’s so convenient to have a delicious, healthy snack we can eat at a moment’s notice.
Last week, we decided to make a honey lime dressing to “dress up” our fruit salad. It’s gives it a sweet, yet slightly tart, flavor. And the lime helps to preserve the fruit salad a bit longer than it would stay fresh on its own.
