Honey Lime Fruit Salad|
This recipe is part of Linda Larsen's Perfect Picnics article.
"This simple dressing is really good with fresh fruit. Pick the best fruits of the season. One real luxury for your guests is to include the fresh cherries that are in season now. Pit them carefully, add a lot to the salad, and you'll be a smash!"
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup honey
Blend well with wire whisk. Use to dress about 8 cups any combination of fresh fruit. A good combination I like is pitted Bing and Rainier cherries, raspberries, honeydew melon balls, and chunks of peaches and nectarines.
