Honey and Lime Berry Salad

Fresh Berry Fruit Salad

Does anyone else get giddy with excitement about fresh berries? I love that this time of year the stores are just bursting with fresh fruit. I’ve seen strawberries as low as 98 cents a pound already, and I can’t wait to spend the summer eating as many strawberries as humanly possible!

My kids love strawberries and blueberries, but sometimes find raspberries and blackberries a little tart for their taste. They love them in this summer berry salad, though! The honey adds just a touch of sweetness without taking away from the delicious fruit flavor, and the lime makes the whole berry salad taste fresh and adds a great depth of flavor.

This berry salad recipe is easy to customize to whatever fruit you have on hand, too. I had a ripe kiwi sitting on the counter and decided to throw it in, just for fun, and it was a tasty addition. You really can’t go wrong here!

How To Make A Berry Salad With A Honey Lime Dressing

Slice & Dice – Start by washing your fruit and then slicing the larger fruit into bite-sized pieces.  Throw them in a bowl and mix them up.

The Dressing – Next, toss in the zest of one lime and then drizzle the honey over the top of the fruit.  Toss everything again so the berries have an even coat.

Chill – I think the berry salad tastes best if it has had a chance to cool in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  Now only do I think fruit tastes better cold but it gives the flavors a chance to meld together in the fridge.
