Happy Friday everyone! Last weekend we had a bunch of great friends over for a potluck & I served this simple summery fruit salad. Think i’ll do the same this weekend.

What makes fruit salad so fabulous are the colorful, fresh, seasonal ingredients & it’s a lovely way to satisfy sweet teeth with healthful ingredients!

A lively sauce/dressing. We all have certain fruits we love in a fruity salad.

Choose your favorites & adjust the dressing to suit the sweetness ~ tartness of your fruit.

This looks so great for a hot summer day. I’m a huge fan of adding herbs to fruit salads and the dressing sounds delicious!

I love this flavor combination – lemon, honey, mint! Years ago fruit salad was synonymous with goopy dressing. It’s great to see the popularity now of fruit-forward salads with light, refreshing dressing. Yum!

That is my kind of salad. It’s fresh and it has everything i love. I make similar one sometimes. I cut the fruits and mix them with yogurt. Never thought of honey though. I think it will fit just perfect. Great recipe again. Thank you.
