Strawberry, Blueberry, and Green Grape Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing


 
Happy Easter, everyone! Today we're spending Easter Sunday with Ryan's family. Our little manchild looked so handsome in his little dress clothes for church. What a stud. 

This is the side dish I chose to bring today for dinner. I love fruit mucho. It's so fresh and light - I love exploding grapes in my mouth, the slight bitterness of blueberries, and the familiar sweetness of strawberries. So when I found this recipe through Pinterest, I just had to try it out this weekend. I was a little nervous about the sweet lime and honey glaze over the fruit salad, but after tasting a couple pieces... it's really fantastic! Perfectly simple, and beautifully decadent. This is a keeper, for sure.

Strawberry, Blueberry, and Green Grape 
Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
recipe by oh! youcook!

1 pt. container strawberries
1 pt. container blueberries
1  bunch (about 1 1/2 lbs.) seedless grapes (green, red or a mixture of both)
1/4 cup honey  

juice from 2 limes (about 2-3 tablespoons)

Rinse strawberries, blueberries and grapes. Gently pat dry the fruit.  Hull strawberries, then cut each in half; if large, cut into quarters. Remove stems from blueberries, if any. Remove grapes from stems. Gently combine  all three in a large bowl or aluminum tray.  Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together honey and lime juice.  Pour over fruit.

  2. This looks so, so good. We lived in Germany for a while, and I remember some of our German friends serving a fruit salad with honey lime dressing on it. I've always wanted to replicate the salad, but could never figure out the dressing. Can't wait to try this!

    1. That's amazing you lived in Germany - I've always always wanted to visit there. You'll have to let me know if it's the same taste you fell in love with. If not, it's still such a tasty twist to your typical fruit salad! Thanks for coming by, Ruth! You rock!
