Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Mint Dressing

IMG_9149

Fruit salad and summer go hand in hand. Especially in this house. When the temp reaches in the triple digits, and stays there for 3 – 4 months, we want to eat something cool and refreshing.

The mint lime dressing is the perfect accompaniment. It is almost like a fruit mojito. You have to try this dressing. It is so yummy and I can’t get enough of it on any kind of fruit. Not to mention that it is so simple, it is almost a crime not to add this dressing onto your fruit salad.

Fruit-Salad

I made this salad for a tapas date night, so I used fruits that were tropical and my vibrant. I included pineapple, strawberries, kiwis and watermelon, but you can use any of your favorite fruits for this recipe. I just love the combination of the fruits I chose and I love how vibrant and bright these fruits are. I used a melon baller for the watermelon, but that was mostly just for presentation. It is optional obviously. But I have always loved a good melon baller to make my fruit in little bite size shapes.
