Honey Lime Fruit Salad Dressing gives fresh fruit salad a very bright, fresh flavor. The dressing pairs well with any fruit. Whether you make this dressing and use it with Summer or Winter fruit, it’ll be a wonderful and welcome treat.
I’m a very big fresh fruit eater, always have been and always will be. In the summer the sweet natural juices of fruit are refreshing to me. When I started thinking about making a fruit salad I wanted to make a dressing that didn’t add a lot of sugar to the fruit. I wanted a dressing that would compliment and enhance the natural sweetness of it instead of overpower and cover it up. Honey Lime Fruit Salad Dressing did just that. It was lovely, seriously lovely.
I used a variety of sliced fresh fruits along with berries for the recipe that equaled five cups. Use whatever fruit your family enjoys to make the salad. I will say though if you are going to add bananas (I didn’t) , I’d wait till you’re almost ready to serve the fruit salad to add them and then just toss quickly before serving.
How to make Honey Lime Fruit Salad Dressing
The dressing has three ingredients. Lime, honey and mint. The lime brightens the flavor of the fruit while the honey adds a touch of sweetness.
I used a Tablespoon of mint that I diced fine then added to the other two ingredients and whisked together. When I served this to my husband and asked him what he thought of the mint flavor he looked at me and said…
“Is that what that was? I knew I could taste something but couldn’t put my finger on it. It was nice.”
That made me happy because the mint was there, but it wasn’t overpowering. It complimented ,enhanced and added flavor without being up front and center. If you are a mint lover you can always add more to your taste.
