Up your side dish game with this quick and crowd-friendly recipe for The Best Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing.

A white bowl containing fruit salad topped with fresh mint leaves

That big ol’ bowl of rainbow-colored juiciness was a total accident. I actually shot the above photo with my iPhone and after sharing it on Instagram, I realized quite quickly that sometimes the simplest of recipes can be the biggest of hits.

I was inundated with requests for the recipe, and since I am never one to deny the culinarily curious, I present to you The Best Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing!

I brought this fruit salad as a super last-minute potluck addition for a friend’s brunch and, call me crazy, but it was gone before the platter of bacon!

I’ve awarded it the title of “The Best Fruit Salad” because it encompasses everything you want in this side dish staple:

  • A rainbow of color
  • A refreshing crunch
  • A balance of sweetness and tanginess

You can serve it as is or layer it up with yogurt for the ultimate parfait. Best of all, we’re talking about a fruit salad here, not nuclear fission, so use this recipe as a basic template but feel free to swap in whatever fruit is in season to really make the most of this dish 365 days a year.

    I didn’t have all the fruit for this recipe but I used what I had. Fortunately I had pomegranate arils because they added a nice fresh pop of flavor. Served with Jalapeño brats. I will definitely make this again. So easy and delicious. Thank You!

  2. My go to fruit recipe for family gatherings and work pot luck. Making for the 3rd time in 3 months. This time for a Father’s Day brunch. We love it so much.

    Excellent and the dressing is the best, fresh and tangy. I tried it with maple syrup instead of honey and it’s yummy
