Spring gifts us with fresh fruit and warmer days. Fruit Salad is a perfect go-to-breakfast, or maybe you’d prefer a juicy side dish? Today’s Dowan sharing: Honey lime fruit salad recipes from Karina. If you love honey and lime, you will LOVE a bowl of this Honey Lime Fruit Salad! What better way to either start the day, enjoy the day, or FINISH the day with a bowl of freshly made, ripe fruit salad, bursting with flavor.
Yet, this is another one of those recipes I hesitated to share because of its simplicity, BUT, I know some of you will love and appreciate a new way to eat and enjoy your fruits. This fruit salad recipe has been in our family for more than I can remember. In fact, we just drizzle on honey, squeeze over lime, and never measure anything because, well, we just have this inherent ‘knowing’ of just how much to put in due to practice. It’s such a common recipe, there are a gazillion Honey Lime Fruit Salad recipes on the internet, in recipe books, magazines, and anywhere else you look.
We supplement it with one little addition to give it that juicy-loving flavor. . Pineapple juice in the dressing always make a difference! The honey is also GREAT if you have some fruit on the sour side. The lime juice gives it a bit of a beautiful, tangy kick. However, adding pineapple juice gives it a hint of sweetness, where you’re hooked and can’t put your fork (or spoon) down type of situation.
If you’ve never tried a Honey Lime Fruit Salad with the addition of a tropical pineapple, do yourself a favor and PLEASE run into your kitchen and follow this recipe!
Some honey lime fruit salad tips
We leave out bananas in our fruit salads because of the empowering banana flavor being absorbed and dominating the flavor from the other fruits. You can add banana if you wish! I recommend adding it just before serving.
You can also substitute pineapple juice for orange juice or apple juice.
Use any fruits you like! Add in blackberries, pomegranates, pear, apple, orange slices, mandarin slices, peaches, apricots, the choices are endless.
