Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

     All of the kids big and little at my house like fruit, so some kind of fruit salad is on the menu every holiday. I came across the idea of making a dressing with honey and lime to lightly coat the fruit. I was afraid it would be too much pucker or sticky sweet to touch but was pleasantly surprised that this fruit salad had neither. It was a perfect balance and the kids of all sizes liked it. This is an easy way to give fruit a new twist.

Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
1 qt. strawberries
1 pt. blueberries (or about 1 cup)
1 bunch (about 1- 1/2 lbs.)
green seedless grapes
1/4 cup honey
3 T. limes juice (about 2 limes)

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 berries and grapes, if any.

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.
