This recipe is super duper easy, and super duper yummy! In fact, it's less of a recipe and more of a brilliant idea. I've made it a million times, but finally decided to share it because it's so simple and so good! Abby has a hard time eating fruit that's on the tart side (raspberries are pushing it for her) and I love that by adding a little honey, I can get her to eat a much wider variety of fruits. During the summer when fruit is plentiful and inexpensive, I love to make a big bowl of fruit salad to have with dinner most nights. It's good for us and tastes like dessert, too!
You could use any combination of fruits, but here are some of my favorites:
strawberries + oranges + raspberries
strawberries + nectarines + blueberries + bananas
fresh pineapple + clementines + bananas
When you've got your fruit all chopped up and ready to go, drizzle a little honey over the top (I usually use 1/2 -1 teaspoon), toss in the zest of one lime, and add a squeeze or two of lime juice. The honey and lime bring out all the fresh, beautiful flavors of the fruit, and really make the salad awesome. I think a little coconut sprinkled on top wouldn't go amiss, either. :) Enjoy!
