After my Fro Yo adventure, I still had lots of fruit. I couldn't resist all the yummy berries and peaches--plus they were on sale! Yay! Needless to say, I made some fruit salad. Mmmm. Not just any fruit salad, but a Honey Lime fruit salad.
1 1/2 - 2 pounds fresh strawberries (buy a 2lb container, expect a few to be bad plus plan on the few you'll eat as you prepare this...)
1 pint fresh blueberries
4 small peaches or nectarines
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup lime juice
Thoroughly wash and dry all your fruit. Use a fruit was if you have it. Next, hull and half or quarter the strawberries, remove any remaining stems from blueberries, and slice peaches or nectarines. Put all the fruit in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix lime juice and honey until well blended. Pour honey-lime mixture over fruit pieces and gently toss to coat. You can serve immediately or store in the fridge for 3 or 4 days, not that it'll last that long!
I've served mine simply in a pretty glass.
You could also layer the fruit salad, some cubed angel food cake pieces and some vanilla Greek yogurt for a yummy and low fat dessert.
It'd be great served over Belgian waffles (or in my house, Eggo waffles--who are we kidding here?)
You could even add some to some sparkling white wine for a summer take on sangria.
Take advantage of all the fresh produce this time of year!
