Fruit salad is a recipe if we can call it a recipe, that I connect to my father. He loves it and often prepares it to himself. I don’t. Sometimes I buy ready-to-eat ones while in Brazil, but usually, I eat the fruit separately.
But as it happens often, one day you see a recipe that calls your attention and decide to try it. And you like it.
I admit that poppy seeds made me feel like trying this fruit salad recipe (I love it since I first prepared the lemon poppyseed plumcake that became one of our classics here at home), even if I was not indifferent to lime zest and juice.
To make things short, I prepared this fruit salad and we ate it in little time. I had never “dressed” a fruit salad before and I really liked it this way.
You can obviously change the fruits. I was inspired by the recipe I saw on Taste of Home. I changed some quantities and used fresh pineapple instead of canned one.
- 1/2 pineapple cut in small cubes
- 3 cups fresh strawberries washed and cut in 4
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 kiwi (washed, peeled and cut in cubes)
- 1 Nevel orange cut Supreme (check here how to do it)
- 1 to 2 Tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp lime zest
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 2 tsp poppy seeds
Mix well the dressing ingredients and pour into a bowl where you have put all the fruit. Mix until the dressing has covered all fruit. Serve immediately or keep in the fridge until serving.
