Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Fresh summer fruit is great but unfortunately it is coming to an end! Now that we have cut out a lot of heavy carbs, gluten and started eating more clean, we fill up on fresh fruit and veggies. Typically we eat them plain but occasionally I like to give fruit a little extra something. This honey lime dressing was so easy to throw together and complimented the fruit wonderfully. It goes really well with the papaya and pineapple. Feel free to enjoy as much of this salad as you want – you shouldn’t have too much guilt about it!

Fruit Salad
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
1 red plum, sliced
1 cup fresh papaya, diced
1 cup fresh grapes, halved
Honey Lime Dressing
½ cup water
¼ cup honey
1 Tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
1 lime, zest and juice
  • Mix together fruit in a serving bowl.
  •  In a small bowl or carafe bottle, mix together lime juice, lime zest, water, honey and mint. Stir until well blended.
  • Drizzle a little dressing over fruit salad and serve.
  • Best if served over fresh fruit immediately, but the dressing will keep for a few days in the refrigerator.
